Museum shares 2020 Annual Review

The IU Eskenazi Museum of Art is excited to share highlights from 2020 with guests and supporters. You can view the latest Annual Review online to learn more about our accomplishments during the 2020 calendar year.

Each year, the Eskenazi Museum of Art presents featured exhibitions, acquires new works of art, engages guests with original artworks through gallery tours and special viewings, and connects Pre-K–12 and university students and educators with the museum’s collection. The Annual Review presents some of the highlights of our programs through metrics, photographs, and stories. This year, it also includes an update on the museum’s new strategic plan and features spotlight profiles of artists in our permanent collection.

Although 2020 was a challenging year for our museum, we remained committed to reaching out to our communities virtually and in-person with enhanced public safety measures. We look forward to sharing those accomplishments with our supporters.

About the IU Eskenazi Museum of Art

Since its establishment in 1941, the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art has grown from a small university teaching collection into one of the most significant university art collections in the United States. A preeminent teaching museum on the Indiana University campus, its internationally acclaimed collection, ranging from ancient gold jewelry and African and Oceanic works to paintings by modern masters such as Pablo Picasso and Jackson Pollock, includes more than 45,000 objects representing nearly every art-producing culture throughout history.

The Eskenazi Museum of Art just completed a $30 million renovation of its acclaimed I. M. Pei–designed building. When it reopens on November 7, 2019, the newly renovated museum will be an enhanced teaching resource for Indiana University and southern Indiana. The museum is dedicated to engaging students, faculty, artists, scholars, alumni, and the wider public through the cultivation of new ideas and scholarship.
