Hoosier-in-Residence: T.C. Steele’s Franklin Hall Studio

10:00 am to 04:00 pm on Nov 13
Monroe County History Center, 202 E 6th Street

Born and raised a Hoosier, T. C. Steele brought the beauty of the Indiana landscape to a developing modern world. For the last four years of his life, T. C. and Selma Steele made Bloomington their home from fall to spring, spending the other half at the House of Singing Winds in nearby Brown County. While serving as Indiana University’s first artist-in-residence, he was given a studio at the top of Franklin Hall. Showing the impact T.C. and Selma Steele had on IU and Bloomington, the Monroe County History Center rebuilds that Franklin Hall studio supported by the IU Office of the Bicentennial.

July Virtual Gallery Walk” “Art & Activism”

05:00 pm
From the Comfort of Your Home Computer

Gallery Walk Virtual Event Friday, July 10th at 5PM
Panel Discussion: “Art and Activism”
Most of us are all-too-familiar with the injustices and inequities plaguing the world and at such a relevant time. As innovators, creatives, gallery owners, artists and influencers, how can we be part of a paradigm shift that provides solutions to these challenges? How, through our art & voice, do we replace awareness with activism, make sure our work does no harm, and grow our brand/presence/audience in the process?
On Friday, July 10th, head over to our Gallery Walk Bloomington Facebook page to watch a video discussion featuring a panel of artists and activists as we discuss how ART, in all its different forms, plays a role in our society and the world.

We will interview local artists:
Nefertiti Morris – Fashion, photography, painter
Terin D – Tattoo artist
Aaron “Ezi” Underwood – Street artist and pop culture illustration
