Indianapolis Museum of Art
Founded in 1883, the Indianapolis Museum of Art is one of the oldest art museums in the country.
It's also one of the nation's largest general art museums, with permanent collections of African, American, Asian and European art.
The IMA houses the largest collection of watercolors by J.M.W. Turner outside of Great Britain, the 2,000-piece Eiteljorg Collection of African Art and the
famous LOVE sculpture by Robert Indiana.
Following a $180 million renovation and expansion, the IMA re-opened with three new wings, 50 percent more gallery space, an outdoor garden court,
expanded educational and family facilities and other new visitor amenities.
The project added 164,000 square feet to the museum and included renovation
of 90,000 square feet of existing space.
The multi-faceted project also included the creation of the 100-acre Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park.
The museum is located on 152 acres of landscaped grounds that include a historic country estate, formal and informal gardens,
a working greenhouse and garden store, cafe and gift shop.
