Indianapolis Art Center

The Indianapolis Art Center showcases local and regional artists and artisans and serves as a community arts education and resource center in Indianapolis. Visitors are also encouraged to sign up for one time only classes in pottery, glass blowing, painting, jewelry making and more.

World-renowned architect and Indianapolis native Michael Graves designed the Art Center’s $7.2 million facility.

The Art Center houses eight exhibition spaces, which allows for nearly 30 exhibits per year. It also features a gift shop, 13 studios, a library, the Riverfront Deck and Stage and a 24-seat auditorium.

ARTSPARK, a multi-sensory outdoor art and nature park opened on 12 acres of land in 2005. The Indianapolis Art Center hosts the annual Broad Ripple Art Fair each May and offers more than 200 art classes in a variety of mediums for all skill levels.
