Event Description

Step Into the Painting at the Haan Museum

With an exciting new twist on learning about daily living in Indiana in the 1800’s and early 1900’s, the Haan Museum of Indiana Art invites guests to view art in a different way. The Museum selected paintings from its collection, featuring some of Indiana’s most important artists, showing people engaged in a variety of activities from Indiana’s past, such as feeding chickens; playing the piano and cello; the circus coming; a child helping her mother do laundry; girls carrying buckets of milk; and Indians playing the “Moccasin Game”. Historic art can teach us a lot about our past, and the exhibition at the Haan Museum provides an opportunity to feel what it was like to live in Indiana before our grandparents were born.
