T. C. Steele Historic Site announces 2003 art contest winners

Nashville, IN The T.C. Steele State Historic Site witnessed aspiring artists and art lovers of all ages enjoying the 15th Annual Great Outdoor Art Contest in Brown County on Sunday, Sept. 13.

The event featured more than 100 artists painting on the T. C. Steele grounds from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m., while the public observed the artists at work and enjoyed an afternoon outdoor jazz concert.

The contest provided a unique insight into the way Hoosier Group Impressionist artist T.C. Steele created his paintings: outside and in the open air.
