Cause and Æffect (CLOSED)

Women have a long history of fighting for their rights. This spring and summer, explore artworks born of that activism. Discover the artists behind each piece, and learn about the causes they continue to fight for. See works inspired by debate over topics like the death penalty or the environment, then take a moment for self-reflection and an opportunity to react. 


Following the direction of Governor Eric Holcomb and recommendations from the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH), the White River State Park (WRSP) Frank Lloyd Visitors Center and the IMAX Theater at the Indiana State Museum are temporarily closed beginning Mar. 17, in response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. In addition, all scheduled programs, activities, and events, including those in Military Park have been postponed or suspended during this period. 

This decision was made out of an abundance of caution, to protect the safety and health of our staff, volunteers and visitors. As the situation continues to unfold, a date to reopen and resume activities will be established, based on recommendations from ISDH.
