Works of Famous Local Artist From Yesterday on Display

(La Porte, IN) - A famous late artist from La Porte now has some of his works on display locally.  The Ralph Fletcher Seymour Exhibit is now open at the La Porte County Historical Society Museum on U.S. 35 outside the southern edge of the city.


After graduating from La Porte High School, Seymour went on to become one of the most famous artists in Chicago at the turn of the century.


He also gained a lot of notoriety for his Native American themed works in the southwest part of the nation.   His works of art are in the permanent collections of the Sorbonne in Paris, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the National Arts Club in Washington, D.C.


Currently, some of his pieces are on the wall of the museum gallery and will be until August.


Seymour was 89 when he died in 1966 in Batavia, Illinois.
