Explore The Clowes Pavilion Reimagined Online Resources
The Indianapolis Museum of Art welcomes visitors to the Clowes Pavilion, newly reimagined after a multi-year renovation, 50 years after its inaugural opening date. The reinstalled space includes a state-of-the-art LED ceiling that evokes an outdoor space in the heart of the museum, surrounded by beloved works from the Clowes Collection. Favorites like Rembrandt’s Self-Portrait and the Raphael-designed tapestry The Miraculous Draught of Fishes are shown alongside objects from other parts of the IMA’s permanent collection, such as Duvor (Communal Cloth) by the Ghanaian sculptor El Anatsui. The nearly 100 objects on view offer a fresh new perspective on significant social and art historical themes throughout the ages and are interspersed with innovative and engaging teaching elements.
