Lizzy’s art was selected to be displayed at the Indiana State House.
Twenty-nine winners of the 2016 Hoosier Women Artists Contest were announced by Treasurer of State Kelly M. Mitchell. A reception was held at the Indiana Statehouse honoring the winners who will have their artwork display in either Mitchell’s office or Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb’s office for the next year.
This is the ninth anniversary of the competition, which is held in conjunction with Women’s History Month. A wide variety of art including drawing, painting and photography will be displayed in the offices.
“Thousands of people visit the Indiana Statehouse throughout the year and the work of talented Hoosier Women is enjoyed by all,” said Mitchell. “I am truly honored to have the opportunity to partner with Lt. Governor Holcomb’s office to showcase the talented female artists we have in the Hoosier state.”
The winning artwork was judged and selected by a committee including Mitchell, staff from both the Lt. Governor and Treasurer’s offices as well as Elizabeth Nash, masters student of Museum Studies at the Herron School of Art and Design at IUPUI.
Lizzy was chosen from over a hundred entries in the tenth annual competition to be one of the Hoosier Women Artists, announced by Treasurer of State Kelly M. Mitchell.
Her painting was on display for one year in Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann’s office.
