Call and Response: Creative Interpretations of the Wylie House

8 Artists with text short (small).jpg
Eight professional Indiana artists created new pieces for “Call and Response: Creative Interpretations of Wylie House,” an artistic extension of the Wylie House Museum’s commitment to share the lesser-known histories of people associated with the home. Sponsored by the Arts & Humanities Council at Indiana University, “Call and Response” is part of Indiana Remixed, the Council's program celebrating the arts and ideas that shape Indiana today.

Heritage Archaeology: Agriculture to Floriculture

Cyantotype real picture postcard of Wylie House (P0071637) MAY 1907.png
Theophilus and Rebecca Wylie moved into the Wylie House in the mid-nineteenth century, when households were transitioning from large-scale agriculture to small-scale leisure gardening, or floriculture. This exhibit showcases the June 2018 field school run by a team of Indiana University students and Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology staff to learn more about the Wylies’ garden “pits,” subterranean cold-frame greenhouses that insulated their flowers from harsh weather.

Wishing Tree Project

_MG_4008.jpg
In the spring of 2020, Indiana University MFA student Christine Wang recieved an IU-Bloomington Public Arts Grant funded by the office of the Vice Provost of Research and the Arts and Humanities Council and planned to conduct several paper-making workshops and install artwork at the Wylie House Museum. Unfortunately, her work was cut short due to COVID-19. This exhibit displays the artwork she installed in the Wylie gardens and explains her message of environmental consiousness and the connection between art and the earth.
