Indiana has turned out its share of designers, from Mark Hampton in decorating to Norman Norell, Bill Blass, Roy Halston Frowick (aka Halston), and Stephen Sprouse in fashion. The latter four strut their stuff in "An American Legacy: Norell, Blass, Halston & Sprouse," opening at the Indianapolis Museum of Art on May 4. Comprising 51 pieces, some from the museum's collection and some from the Sprouse archives, the show traces the designers' careers and gives them a fresh look.
