Sponsor a Purchase Award

Purchase Award Sponsors get exclusive early access to a private online sale period from March 8-March 22, 2023.


Generations Fine Art Sale and Exhibition features leading artists from across Indiana and is hosted at the historic Haan Museum of Indiana Art. Twelve highly-collectible artists working in paint and sculpture have been invited to present their work within the extraordinary backdrop of the museum’s historic and contemporary Indiana Art collections. The proceeds of this event are divided between artists and the Museum.

Participating artists include: Mason Archie, John Michael Carter, Timothy Greatbatch, James Haire, Tuck Langland, Wyatt LeGrand, Pamela Newell, Chris Newlund, Kate Orr, Donna Shortt, Jerry Smith, and Stephanie Paige Thomson. Each artist has provided one to three pieces for the sale.

Purchase Awards are advantageous to the artist, museum, and collector alike. In the case of Generations, our program grants award sponsors exclusive early access to the sale in exchange for agreeing to the conditions set forth below.
