Picturing Indiana Limestone

The Indiana University Art Museum celebrates Limestone Month with four rare watercolor paintings by noted Hoosier artist, Otto Stark. His paintings focus on Indiana's limestone industry. Curator, Nan Brewer explains why Stark chose to depict limestone in his artwork.

"There was an interest in a local subject matter. And this shows just the interest of patrons at this period, particularly Indiana businessmen, and focusing on what local, what was regional; that they were proud of this local industry. And at the turn of the century there were over sixty limestone quarries in Indiana. So this was thriving industry."

The Indiana Limestone exhibit is on display daily until August 30th.
