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.
