Breaking the Gilded Ceiling, Women Artists of the Nineteenth and Early Twentieth Centuries
March 5-August 25, 2013

This installation will feature women artists—some former artist’s models, some wives and mothers, and some trailblazers—who worked in a variety of media. Included will be work by photographers Anna Atkins, Julia Margaret Cameron, and Laura Adams Armer, as well as prints and drawings by Mary Cassatt, Suzanne Valadon, Gwen John, and Käthe Kollwitz.

Three Remarkable Women: Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun, Margaret Chinnery, and Félicité de Genlis
March 23-September 1, 2013

The IU Art Museum will premiere a focused exhibition featuring Vigée Le Brun’s Portrait of Mrs. Chinnery (1803) and selected materials from the Lilly library. The exhibition presents an unusually rich opportunity to use a single artwork as a lens for an interdisciplinary study of the history, politics, art, literature, and music of its time.

New in the Galleries: Pierre-Auguste Renoir: A Visiting Master Print
May 29-August 18, 2013

One of the originators of the Impressionist style, Pierre-Auguste Renoir was particularly noted for his depictions of his friends, family, and their children in scenes of domestic activity and repose. A favorite subject included two young girls pinning flowers on a hat. Renoir did several versions of this scene in a variety of media, including an important large-scale lithograph that is on temporary loan to the IU Art Museum for the summer. The installation will be complemented by several small prints by Renoir and two portraits of the artist by Pierre Bonnard and Jean-Louis Forain.

New in the Galleries: Sam Gilliam: A Lyrical Abstractionist in Indiana
May 29-September 15, 2013

Sam Gilliam draws on a wide range of inspiration, from his African American heritage and abstract expressionism to the poetry of Pablo Neruda and jazz music. Although associated with the Color Field painters of Washington, D.C., Gilliam had a strong connection to this region of the country. This installation will feature several works produced at IU’s Echo Press and a miniature watercolor painting given by the artist to Bloomington’s Second Baptist Church in honor of his brother Clarence and his wife Frances, who were recently named by the City of Bloomington as a Black History Living Legends.

Special Installation: Tapa: Unwrapping Polynesian Barkcloth
May 29-September 1, 2013

This spring, students taking the course On Exhibit: The Pacific Islands have had the opportunity to create a small installation, as well as an online web module focusing on Polynesian tapa cloth from the permanent collection of the IU Art Museum.
