Evans Woollen

Evans Woollen (1927 - 2016) was known as the 'Dean of Indiana Architecture'. He designed many landmarks, including Clowes Hall, the Children's Museum, the Central Library in Indianapolis, and the Musical Arts Center in Bloomington.

Throughout his 65+ year career, Evans Woollen toed the line between architect and artist. A graduate of Yale, he studied with Joseph Albers and Louis Kahn.

Elizabeth Villar, NYC’s One Art Space curator, described Woollen’s paintings as consisting of “sweeping rhythms, intense color, and a unique quality that provides each the ability to radiate visual energy wherever they are presented. They harmonize in a built space, where the beaming energies of their movement, form, and color become part of the ebb and flow of daily life in an architectural space.”

The artwork of Evans Woollen has been displayed in a multitude of esteemed galleries and art centers across the US. Juniper Art Gallery is thrilled to offer some of the paintings held by his estate for purchase through the gallery and this on-line venue.
