101 W. 2nd St.
Michigan City, IN 46360

Bramson | Indiana | Lake runs  through October 15, 2021, featuring renowned artists: Phyllis Bramson, Robert Indiana, and Mayumi Lake. 

Celebrate the exhibition's official public opening at LCA's First Friday event on July 2, from 3:00 PM – 7:00 PM (CST). 

A public Gallery Talk, led by LCA Exhibition Director Lora Fosberg, will be held on July 10 from 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM (CST).

The artworks of all three artists contain cautionary tales and lessons of the past, sober warnings about the future, and elements of allegory.


Exhibiting in the Hyndman Gallery is work by Phyllis Bramson that spans two decades of her illustrious career. Bramson’s art, which reflects both an affinity for allegory and critique of human folly, includes richly ornate paintings and sculptures that integrate edginess, beauty, and humor.

Robert Indiana, whose works occupy LCA's Brincka/Cross Gallery, creates signposts to warn us about the future. Widely known for his signature piece, LOVE, 1966, Indiana also explores America’s political past from the 1960s and ‘70s. Seven original prints are on display in the Brincka/Cross Gallery.


Mayumi Lake created an exquisite, site-specific installation in LCA's Susan Block Gallerythat reclaims and updates the use of Housouge. Housouge is a motif made with a fanciful fusion of flowers, leaves, and fruit. During times of disaster in ancient Japan, whether natural or human-made, individuals filled sacred sites with these bold, mythical flowers to quell fear and despair.
