Last evening, December 12, 2013, Satch, Mark Ruschman and I made a presentation to the Indiana State Museum’s fine art group. Julie and I went over our history with Jim’s art and our research of Jim’s life and his art for the exhibition and our book. Then Julie, Mark and I went over the timeline of Jim’s life. Mark went over the design of the exhibition and showed some of Jim’s work that has been conserved and is ready for the exhibition.
It was an excellent evening. All the members were into the story of rediscovering a virtually unknown Hoosier artist. We answered many excellent questions and we enjoyed the enthusiasm for Jim’s work and the upcoming exhibition.
