2011 Celebration of Hoosier Women Artists

Lizzy was chosen by Lieutenant Governor Becky Skillman as one of eleven winners in the fifth annual Hoosier Women’s Artists competition. Her painting was on display for one year in the Lt. Governor’s office at the Indiana State House.

Indiana Lt. Governor Becky Skillman announced the 11 winners of her fifth annual Celebration of Hoosier Women Artists competition. The contest is conducted annually in March to coincide with National Women’s History Month.

“I’m reminded every year during this competition that we have an unbelievable amount of talent in the arts here in Indiana,” Lt. Governor Skillman said. “I truly enjoy the process and seeing these works in my office every day.”

Dr. Jean Robertson, professor of Art History at IUPUI’s Herron School of Art and Design, assisted with the judging of the 140 submissions. Lt. Gov. Skillman ultimately selected the 11 winners, after considering feedback from her staff and Dr. Robertson.

The winning pieces will be on display in the lobby of the Lt. Governor’s office and on the Lt. Governor’s website for one year beginning in early April.
