In Gallery 1212, the Brauer Museum showcases 11 paintings from various periods of Frank V. Dudley’s career that highlight the fine works acquired throughout the years by Midwest collector James Moeller. In celebration of the State of Indiana’s 200-year anniversary, this exhibition seeks to reflect through Dudley’s art the timeless quality of the Indiana Dunes.
The Brauer’s small Ferguson Gallery will house “Warhol and Wilhelmina: The Ladies and Gentlemen Series,” an exhibition curated by Kevvie Simonsen that explores a particular theme in Andy Warhol’s work.
Finally, in the large Ferguson Gallery, Sloan Gallery and Education Room, the Brauer Museum presents selections from the permanent collection.
