Hard Truths: The Art of Thornton Dial opens on February 25, 2011 at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
Thornton Dial is a keen observer of the human spectacle and its narratives of corruption and moral strength, folly and triumph. As an artist, he has spent the last two decades exploring the truth of American history and culture in all its complexities and contradictions. This exhibition presents a major survey of Dial’s work, an epic gathering of over fifty large-scale paintings, sculptures, and wall assemblages that address the most compelling issues of our time.
The exhibition will close on May 14, 2011.
