“Painter of the Dunes” Frank Dudley, Lecture and Painting Session w/ Rachel Berenson Perry

Join us for an afternoon of art with Fine Arts Curator Emerita of the Indiana State Museum Rachel Berenson Perry.

Perry’s lecture will cover Painter of the Dunes, Frank Dudley. Once his photographer brother introduced him to the sand dunes of Indiana and vicinity in 1911, Frank Virgil Dudley devoted the rest of his creative life to painting landscapes of the area’s stunning scenery and unique diversity, becoming one of the state’s preeminent artists. His well-earned titles of “Seer of the Dunes” and “Painter of the Dunes” allude to his almost obsessive subject matter as well as his activism to save the dunes.

After learning about the great artist, take an hour to create your own masterpiece. We will provide the space, canvas, paints, and brushes!
All you will need to bring is your imagination and creative spirit.
