The Clowes Gallery at Newfields Reimagined
After a three-year, multi-million-dollar renovation of the Clowes Pavilion in the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields, the Clowes Collection has now returned to public view. Named after its creator, Dr. George Henry Alexander Clowes, it remains the finest collection of Old Master paintings in Indiana and forms the nucleus of the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s permanent collection of European art.
Fifty years after the dedication of the Clowes Gallery, this reinstallation showcases a total of 90 objects spanning various times, places, cultures, and media. Their inclusion offers visitors a fresh perspective on significant social and historical themes. Several works of art are also accompanied by innovative and engaging interpretive elements. New to the Pavilion is a state-of-the-art digital LED ceiling in the courtyard evoking an outdoor space in the heart of the museum.
Dr. Kjell Wangensteen, Associate Curator of European Art, will lead our tour of the reopened gallery and explain the rationale behind the reorganized space.
