"Indigenous Landscapes: Imprints of the South Shore," a new art exhibit highlighting natural settings along the South Shore, will be on display at the Indiana Welcome Center through March 19. The exhibit features approximately 145 pieces in a variety of artistic forms and includes iconic locations such as the Indiana Dunes, Hoosier Prairie and Gibson Woods.


The exhibition, a White Ripple Gallery & Co. exhibit and an official exhibit of the University of Notre Dame's Indigenous World program, celebrates the natural settings near and along the shores of Lake Michigan native to the states of Illinois, Indiana and Michigan that remain undisturbed since the times of the indigenous people of the area.


An opening reception will be held at the Indiana Welcome Center on Wednesday, Feb. 11, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. During the reception, visitors can view the pieces of art while meeting with artists. Jocelyn Prue, exhibit curator and owner of White Ripple Gallery & Co., will discuss the origins of the exhibit.
