The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art
The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art in Indianapolis is celebrating its 30th anniversary with new art exhibitions and special events throughout the month. The museum kicked off the celebration March 9 with the opening of a new featured exhibition, A Sense of Beauty: Showcasing Power and Beauty in Native Art.
Additional events include a 30th anniversary party on March 29 and another exhibition: Bringing Friends Together: Contemporary Hopi Carvings from the Eagle, Perelman and Rader Collections, on March 30.
“Over the past 30 years, the Eiteljorg has evolved into a nationally renowned institution and pillar of Indianapolis’ cultural community,” John Vanausdall, museum president and chief executive officer, said in a news release. “As we have developed new and lasting relationships with community leaders and supporters, we have grown in countless ways. Our founder’s love for Western and Native American art was at the heart of a new museum that opened its doors to the public in 1989. We wonder if Harrison Eiteljorg could have imagined how much the collection and the museum itself would grow in the subsequent years.”
