Museum news

The Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art at Indiana University is pleased to announce the acquisition of Boîte à musique III (Music Box III) (1945) by the French/Mexican Surrealist artist Alice Rahon (1916–1987). The purchase of the painting was made possible thanks to the generosity of Paula Sunderman, a docent at the Eskenazi Museum of Art, along with Ann Sanderson, a former member of the museum’s National Advisory Board, and the estate of Herman B Wells via the Joseph Granville and Anna Bernice Wells Memorial Fund.

The IU Eskenazi Museum of Art is excited to announce that it will reopen to visitors following a five-month closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic. On Thursday, August 27, the museum will open to the general public in accordance with the university’s latest safety guidelines, designed to keep both guests and staff safe.
