Spectacular art. Inspired by the land. Celebrate work by Indiana artists at Open Space: Art About the Land at Minnetrista!

Muncie, IN— Celebrate the significance of land and its importance in Indiana in an art competition and exhibition, Open Space: Art About the Land, which opens on August 30 at Minnetrista. 

The exhibit is in cooperation with Red-tail Land Conservancy. A portion of the proceeds will go to help further its mission to preserve and restore ecologically significant land in East Central Indiana.

“In Open Space: Art About the Land, you’ll see how Indiana artists connect with their environment; not just in their state, but globally,” said Karen Vincent, director of Collections at Minnetrista. “Using media as diverse as oil paint to photography to gem stones and copper wire, the selected artists interpret their surroundings.”

The exhibit recognizes and encourages local artists who derive creative inspiration from the land, or whose work celebrates the notion of open space as it relates to the land.

Open Space: Art About the Land opens on August 30 at Minnetrista. Visit the exhibit from Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Admission is $5 per person, FREE for members.
