Over the past hundred years, Indiana agriculture has evolved from family farming to a global industry using biotechnology and satellite positioning. This magnificent collection of more than 100 works of art by ten outstanding Indiana plein air painters tells the story of that transformation, the forces that brought it about, and the impact it has had on the people, the culture, and the economy of the state. These gifted artists, selected through a competition, painted subjects as diverse as livestock farms, lumber harvesting, meat packing, farmers' markets, and huge automated dairy operations. An introduction by Rachel Berenson Perry discusses the tradition of plein air painting in Indiana. Profiles of the artists and their work conclude this visually stunning book.
