The Artists of Brown County 


By Lyn Letsinger-Miller; IU Press; $49.95;

This handsome book, originally published in 1994 in connection with an expansive exhibit at the Indiana State Museum, remains a treasure of discovery as well as of retrospect. The introduction by exhibit curator Rachel Berenson Perry continues to illuminate and inspire both as art and social history. The color plates allow one to linger over the “motion and change of nature” together with the progression of daily life and material culture. Better than any stand-alone book on geography or sociology, this depiction across a century develops our sense of identity with a past that continues to inform the political and economic decisions we make as Hoosiers. This latter point is even more patent in the new companion DVD produced by Lyn Letsinger-Miller, narrated by Clyde Lee and with music by Jon Kay.
