First Friday: September 6, 6 - 9 pm
In 2017, the Arts Council of Indianapolis partnered with the DeHaan Family Foundation to create the DeHaan Artist of Distinction Award for the purpose of honoring Indianapolis-based contemporary visual artists with grants of up to $10,000 each for aspirational projects.
This September, Gallery 924 presents a curated group exhibition of the second round of recipients: Anila Quayyum Agha, Kassim Norris, Artur Silva, Stefan Petranek, and Cory Robinson. Each artist received the award in 2018 for a specific project that pushed their careers in new dynamic ways, embodying the goals of the program which include a high tolerance for risk and exploration. The works presented in this show represent the outcomes of this new artistic investigation.
