A Day at the Indiana State Museum
Make your way to the Indiana State Museum in Indianapolis this summer for several exciting and educational exhibits.
Running through July 5, So Costly a Sacrifice: Lincoln and Loss explores the darker side of funeral and death rituals of the 1800s. It touches on mourning customs and dives especially deep into the most famous funeral of the century – President Lincoln’s.
The museum will also be presenting Art Meets News: The Work of Photojournalist Bill Foley through July 19. Foley has captured some of the most important newsworthy events of the generation, including the last living photo of Anwar Sadat, the 1983 bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut and several other Middle East events. He won a Pulitzer Prize in 1983.
The exhibition also takes a closer look at a photojournalist’s job, examining the tools of the trade.
