Indy museum seeks photos for Nov. 1-11 Veterans Day ‘Heroes from the Heartland’ exhibit

Indiana’s veterans and active military personnel will be honored this fall at the Indiana State Museum in “Heroes from the Heartland,” a special exhibition on display from Nov. 1 to Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

Hoosiers are invited to submit photos of their friends and family who have served or are currently serving in any branch of the military. The first 300 photos received will be printed and posted on a photo mural at the museum. Photos will also be viewable electronically through the museum’s Facebook and Flickr pages.

“What better way to honor and celebrate those who have and are serving our nation, than by honoring them with a display on Veterans Day? These men and women have and are making a tremendous sacrifice to secure the freedom we enjoy each and every day,” said Colleen Smyth, associate vice president of education.

Photos should be submitted via email by Oct. 25 to and include the following information: name, date of service, military division, hometown and nominator’s name. Photos should be between 150 and 300 dots per inch at 100 percent. Contributors are encouraged to include special stories about the veterans, such as if the service member was part of D-Day in World War II.

Veterans Day activities are included in the regular museum admission of $10 for adults, $9 for seniors and $6 for ages 3 to 12. Schools and groups of 20 or more who schedule visits in advance are eligible for discounted rates.

For more information about this and other events, visit or call 317-232-1637.
