Dining by Design: Silver 1925–2000

Despite the fact that most Americans decided using silver was too much trouble in an age of automatic dishwashers and tiny houses, 20th-century designers and craftsmen produced a glistening array of objects that can still enchant the eye. This exhibition will walk you through the history and development of modern American silver, and show how casual dining and cocktail parties changed the industry, and the tradition of dining in the American home in the 20th century. The silver featured will be on display on the second floor of the Lilly House, where the setting of the home will provide more context for the artworks presented. Guests will see a progression of style, from the art deco era to space-age modern and beyond.

Newfields

As the Indianapolis Museum of Art has grown to become an internationally renowned museum, attention has turned toward increasing the emphasis on combining art with nature. The galleries are surrounded by gardens, water features, over a hundred acres of woodland filled with surprise and beauty. The campus itself is ideal for performances, afternoon walks, kite-flying, cloud-gazing, memory-making, new-idea-having. There’s a mansion to stage unforgettable events, restaurants for relaxing, bars for microbrews and friendships. Newfields is a setting where it’s easy to make connections of all sorts. Like no place else in Indianapolis.
