STATEHOUSE (March 22, 2018) — Artwork by a local artist will soon be on display at the Statehouse, according to State Rep. Julie Olthoff (R-Crown Point).

 Olthoff said Edda Taylor of Crown Point was selected to have her artwork decorate the Statehouse as part of Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch’s Hoosier Women Artists 2018 initiative.

 “Edda is an outstanding photographer and our community is lucky to have her,” Olthoff said. “Edda’s photo chosen by the lieutenant governor will be on display for a year at the Statehouse and enjoyed by many who visit.”

 Taylor will have her work, titled Musician, displayed in the office of Treasurer of State Kelly Mitchell.

 Taylor and other artists were honored at a Statehouse ceremony on Wednesday, which recognized the talents of women throughout Indiana.

 In celebration of Women’s History Month in March, the Hoosier Women Artists initiative is an annual contest recognizing the importance of the arts by showcasing drawings, paintings and photography.
