Indianapolis – Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann has announced the Hoosier Women Artist Contest will continue in its eighth year. Applications are being accepted through February 28, 2014.
Winners of the Hoosier Women Artist Contest will have their artwork displayed in the Lieutenant Governor’s office for one year. The contest celebrates a variety of artistic interests including drawings, paintings and photography. Past entries have included—but are not limited to—portraits, landscapes, animals, buildings and abstracts.
“I am pleased to carry on the tradition of recognizing the tremendous talent of Hoosier women artists,” said Lt. Governor Ellspermann. “The artwork displayed in my front office allows guests from all over the state, nation and world to enjoy the beauty and uniqueness of each piece of art.”
The winning artwork is judged and selected by a panel that includes Lt. Governor Ellspermann and professors from the Indiana University Herron School of Art and Design at IUPUI.
Applications along with electronic copies of the artwork can be submitted on-line through the lieutenant governor’s website, www.in.gov/lg or mailed to 200 West Washington Street, Room 333, and Indianapolis, IN 46204. A statehouse program and reception will be held for all winners in late March.
