The annual juried competition promotes Hoosier artists and their art by identifying the best works by Indiana artists, showcasing them in the annual exhibition and making them available for sale at the exhibition and online.
The show is open to the public during regular museum hours, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. Admission, which includes admission to the entire museum, is $17 for adults, $16 for seniors, $15 for college students and $12 for youth.

The Hoosier Salon Annual Exhibition is Indiana’s longest-running annual exhibition of works by Indiana artists. The first Hoosier Salon exhibition opened in 1925 at Marshall Field’s and Company Galleries in Chicago. A group called Daughters of Indiana created the exhibition as a way to prove that Indiana artists deserved national recognition.
