Abstract:

In 1924, the Daughters of Indiana, a group of women from Indiana living in Chicago, held a tea where they discussed Hoosier art and artists. The meeting sparked the idea of holding an annual exhibit with prizes to showcase Indiana art. Inspired by art salons of Paris, they chose the name Hoosier Salon and the first one opened in March 1925 in the art galleries of Marshall Field & Co. at Chicago. The event was a success with artists, patrons, club members, and guests mingling in the art galleries.
