The Grunwald Gallery at Indiana University is pleased to present State of Nature: Picturing Indiana Biodiversity. The exhibit will contain art and artifacts that encourage an aesthetic appreciation of the natural world in Indiana. Artworks by Indiana artists and artists with connections to Indiana will be intermixed with artifacts from the Indiana Geological and Water Survey and the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites to promote a deeper understanding of our environment. This exhibit will serve to increase literacy about ecological developments, the impact of climate change on everyday life, and encourage awareness of our immediate natural surroundings.

State of Nature: Picturing Indiana Biodiversity will be open by appointment from August 28th to November 18th at the Grunwald Gallery. We encourage visits of individuals and IU classes to view State of Nature. The gallery will be open by appointment only. Please contact grunwald@indiana.edu to arrange a visit. All visitors must wear masks and adhere to physical distancing protocols.

Additionally, the exhibition will be available to view via the Grunwald Gallery’s website, which will include a virtual 3-D walkthrough of the exhibit. It will travel to the Indiana State Museum in Indianapolis in spring 2021.

The Grunwald Gallery would like to thank New Frontiers in the Arts and Humanities, The Environmental Resilience Institute, the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design at Indiana University, and the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites for their support and collaboration on this exhibition.
