The Indianapolis Museum of Art is committed to presenting temporary exhibitions that either enhance or augment the museum’s permanent collection. Through exhibitions, the IMA offers its audience an opportunity to enjoy art and explore the narrative of human creativity. The IMA is proud to present temporary exhibitions which reflect the best in scholarly research and develop the field of art history, and has partnered with some of the finest institutions nationally and internationally in achieving this vision.
Please find below the list of current touring exhibitions. If you are interested in bringing an exhibition to your museum, prospectus details and checklists are available for current touring exhibitions and those in development. Please contact us for additional information.

Fine Prints for Five Dollars
During the Great Depression, Associated American Artists and the American Artists Group commissioned original, signed, limited edition lithographs by such luminaries as Grant Wood, Thomas Hart Benson, and John Steuart Curry. These original lithographs were available to the public for $5 apiece—the equivalent of roughly $70 today. Fine Prints for Five Dollars presents 33 of these works that gave artists a source of income and middle-class Americans the chance to buy signed works at a reasonable price.
