  • I'm not sure my wife and I have ever visited an art center comparable to the Indianapolis Art Center. Located at 820 East 67th Street, on the banks of the White River in the Broad Ripple neighborhood....  more

  • The Indianapolis Art Center is my new favorite happy place as the art lover I am. You can visit the Indianapolis Art Center to discover the work of amazing artists. Take Art and creative classes for you or children. When I visited them, the work of the artist Bad Habbit was being exhibited. She’s such a talented artist. It was also the 50th birthday of the center, so they had an amazing fair which I really enjoyed.
  • The outside area is pretty with some interesting sculptures, and nicely shaded by green tunnels. The nearby river is calming, with some decent views via the wooden walking platforms. You can also stroll right down to the water if you don’t mind getting a little dirty. The art on display when I visited today is a little too leftwing for my tastes, but hey, that’s art. I wouldn’t bring children through it. I’m not in town long enough to take any classes, but it seems really cool. There is a nice little library down one of the halls. The art center looks nice and pretty well maintained, and the few staff members I ran into seemed polite and helpful.
