HER Flag at the Prop

On Thursday, March 19th the Indianapolis Propylaeum has the distinct honor of hosting Her Flag, a national art and travel project commemorating the centennial of the ratification of the 19th amendment.

WES Goes to School

As a part of the Marilyn K. Glick Women's Enrichment Series, the Propylaeum initiated WES Goes to School which provides programs for students at Shortridge High School.
