Museum news

Two portrait photographs are side by side.  The left depicts Darla Blazey, who has shoulder-length dark blonde hair and smiles out at the camera.  The right depicts Natasha Kimmet, who has long blonde hair and smiles out at the camera.

The Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art at Indiana University (IU) has hired Darla Blazey as the Director of Administration and Strategic Initiatives and Dr. Natasha Kimmet as the new Pamela Buell Curator of Asian Art.

Two large square panels are set side by side. Each panel is made up of 126 cloth book covers in different shades of brown and black, arranged in rows and columns to form a grid. Some of the covers are much more worn and damaged than others.

The Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art at Indiana University has acquired the diptych Poplar Trees (2015) from artist Samuel Levi Jones. The work enhances the museum’s growing collection of contemporary art by artists of color, as well as a collection of work by Indiana artists. As an interpretation of a shameful event in Indiana’s history, Poplar Trees facilitates important reflections on the past as well as discussions about persisting inequalities.
