The first Hoosier Salon exhibition opened in 1925 at Marshall Field’s and Co. Galleries in Chicago. A group called Daughters of Indiana created the exhibition as a way to prove that Indiana artists deserved national recognition. Artists included in the inaugural exhibition included T.C. Steele, J. Ottis Adams, Eugene Savage and William Forsyth. The exhibition has continued every year since then, moving to Indianapolis in 1941 and to the Indiana State Museum in 1990. The sponsoring organization is now known as Hoosier Salon Patrons Association.
The show is open to the public during regular museum hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free for museum members and children under age 3, $7 for adults, $6.50 for seniors and $4 for children ages 3-12.
