Hallowed Ground

Megan True Butler University
Faculty Sponsor(s): Gautam Rao Butler University
Museums are institutions that have withstood the tests of time; although they have adapted with the culture, they have remained relevant in society. As someone with passions for art, history, and education, I have found my calling in museums. I have had the opportunity to work in several different museums in Indianapolis in various positions, and have also been able to visit a number of museums throughout the world. Each of these institutions has provided me with a sort of hallowed ground, a feeling that comes not only from the artwork contained within, but seems to emanate from the buildings themselves. In my body of work, I will be interpreting my relationship with a number of the museums that I have visited, worked with, or felt a connection with through paint and canvas. Architecture has always been a source of fascination for me, and is an important element of museums that is often overlooked, so I will be focusing on the architectural details of these museums. Through different media on canvas and careful attention to detail, I hope to express the profound connection I feel to museums.
