Ann Lannert is Evansville, Indiana's “Queen of Assemblage Art”

INDIANA---Often described as the Evansville-area’s “Queen of Assemblage Art”, Ann Lannert was a prolific artist who graced the community with her eclectic found-object, mixed-media oeuvre of work. Hundreds of pieces of art were left in Ann’s place, and her family has worked diligently to make sure that they find homes. After bestowing many to local universities and institutions, over 90 remain. The Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana is displaying and selling these pieces for one week only. This is the public’s chance to have a piece of this woman’s magic in their lives. Ann’s children have purposefully priced the work to sell; they want everyone to have the opportunity to add a Lannert to their collection.
