A Place for Nature
and the Arts
Indianapolis Museum of Art names its
he renowned Indianapolis Museum of Art recently united the
diverse elements of its scenic 152-acre campus, which include
a historic estate, contemporary sculpture park, gardens,
galleries, and performance spaces under the brand Newfields:
A Place for Nature and the Arts.
Along with the new campus name come new exhibits and group experiences for each season, with fun and engaging content that can be tailored
to groups' interests.
Summer is the perfect time to enjoy a Sun King Brewing original beer
in Newfields' new beer garden before learning the history of libations via
a gallery tour. Then "hop" on the Indy Brew Bus to sample a few more of
the area's thriving craft breweries.
Or begin with a walking tour of the nearby Crown Hill Cemetery, resting place of notable American artists, poets, and writers before discovering artworks by famous Indiana artists inside the museum.
Fall brings stunning foliage throughout the campus, including the
Virginia B. Fairbanks Art and Nature Park: 100 Acres. Large-scale
installations dot the picnic-friendly landscape, such as "Funky Bones"-a
unique installation artwork that depicts a human skeleton and is the
setting of Gus and Hazel's first date in Indy native John Green's novel The
Fault in Our Stars.
Groups visiting Indy this year won't want to miss the special exhibit
"Bes-Ben: The Mad Hatter of Chicago," which runs through Jan. 6,
2019. Benjamin B. Green-Field and his sister Bessie made names for
themselves with elaborate, flamboyant, and humorous hat creations for
Chicago's elite from the 1920s through the 1970s.
