Before the arrival of the Spanish in 1532, Peru had seen the rise and fall of numerous cultures and artistic styles, not just those of the Inca Empire, for which it is so well known. Because these civilizations lacked written records, we gain our understanding of their histories and societies through their art and archaeology. Focusing primarily on ceramics from cultures before the time of the Inca, this installation encourages visitors to explore less familiar arts and traditions.

Modern Sculptors in Indiana
Gallery of the Art of the Western World, Steinmetz Kellett Gallery, first floor
Continuing through March 12, 2017

Several modern sculptors of national and international prominence were born in Indiana, worked in the state, or came here to study. This installation features the work of artists Robert Laurent, David Smith, George Rickey, David Hayes, Alexander Calder, Isamu Noguchi, and (from October onwards) William Wiley, all of whom have Indiana connections. This installation is presented in conjunction with the Indiana State Bicentennial and has been endorsed as an official Bicentennial Legacy Project.

Special Exhibitions Gallery, first floor
The Eskenazi Museum of Art serves as the only Midwest venue for this major traveling exhibition, which covers more than twenty-five years of the internationally acclaimed artist’s career. Known for his photographic images of famous people, places, and artworks created using unconventional materials, Vik Muniz has become a staple of the contemporary art scene. His smart, postmodern pictures delight viewers, while challenging their perceptions.

Like You, I Have a Story to Tell – Documentary Film Screening

05:00 pm to 07:00 pm
Trinity Episcopal Church - 111 S Grant St
http://shalomcommunitycenter.org/

In 2016 a writing class at IU teamed up with the residents of Crawford Homes, a program that provides permanent supportive housing for chronically homeless people. Eleven residents teamed up with two students each to write their life stories. Not only did we learn about their diverse and fascinating backgrounds, but also about the ways that we are all the same, as people who grow, work, and love. Please join us to screen the documentary about the project and the effects it had on its participants.
Please bring a donation of a new, quality hygiene product or house cleaning product to help stock the pantry at Crawford Homes. Items from the pantry are used to reward residents for helping their neighbors or participating in activities.
