Contributions in honor of John and Sarah Lechleiter
To recognize the Lechleiters’ passion for supporting Indiana art and artists, the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites gratefully accepts gifts to the Fine Art Acquisition Fund in honor of Sarah and John. The Fine Art Acquisition Fund provides much-needed resources for the museum to take ownership of works of Indiana art from a wide variety of artists, formats, and time periods. Contributions to this fund help to make it possible for the ISMHS to enhance its collection such that it represents the rich diversity of Indiana art for future generations to appreciate.
Contributors to the Fine Art Acquisition Fund in honor of John and Sarah who make their gifts prior to March 20, 2017 will receive recognition in the Tribute event program. Gifts can be made online by clicking the ticket button above or by mailing a check to Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites Foundation, 650 W. Washington St. Indianapolis, IN 46204.
