Exploration: A Retrospective of the Works of Bill Meehan
A retrospective of local artist and DePauw University art professor Bill Meehan began October 8th, 2022 and ran through February 11, 2023.
Loans from family, the museum and private collections brought together the works of an artist who was comfortable and accomplished using mixed media, oils and watercolors. The exhibit showed Meehan’s love of people, place, and animals in abstract, still life and landscape, including his whimsical cows.

Besides the great amount of work he produced while exploring Indiana, Meehan’s sabbaticals and travels allowed him to create his art in Mexico, Argentina, Greece and diverse areas of the United States. Meehan retired from DePauw in 1992. He left a collection of more than 1,700 works when he died in 1997.
