INDIANA – The tradition of Hoosier artists creating portraits of Indiana’s governors dates back more than 150 years. Now, the state has opened the search for the next artist to join that tradition and paint the official portrait of Gov. Eric Holcomb for the historic Indiana Governors’ Portrait Collection.
The Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites is accepting applications online through Oct. 23 and will coordinate the selection process to determine the painter who will receive the honor of the commission.
Once complete, the approximately 42-inch by 32-inch oil or acrylic painting will become the 55th portrait in the collection, which is managed by the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites.
