With four interstates finding their way through the Midwest’s third largest city, it can be said, quite literally, that all roads lead to Indy, the “crossroads of America”. In fact, one of the most famous roadways has to be the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which hosts the Indy 500 each Memorial Day weekend and draws a crowd of over 300,000 annually. Additionally, the capital of Indiana, located in the heart of the state, is home to a great number of museums and other art spaces, as well as notable art schools and programs for prospective art students. Among the more well known, the Indianapolis Museum of Art is one of the oldest and largest general art museums in the country and it features the Samuel Josefowitz Collection of Gauguin and exceptional collections of Japanese Edo-period paintings. It also hosts the Penrod Arts Fair, one of the most popular art festivals in the city. Moreover, the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, the Indiana State Museum, and the Eiteljorg Museum, which showcases both Native American and Western art, culture, and history, all add to the city’s “artscape”. The Indianapolis Art Center, an art organization striving to enhance the accessibility of the arts, maintains the Marilyn K. Glick School of Art, a 40,000-square-foot facility, designed by world-renowned architect Michael Graves, the Cultural Complex, and ARTSPARK. The Center also hosts the Broad Ripple Arts Fair, an annual fundraiser that features over 225 national and international artists. Broad Ripple Village, an artistic community in its own right, features eclectic galleries, diverse restaurants, and interesting variations in public art. Art students also have reason to spend their summers in Indianapolis as the city’s art scene truly comes to life. Among the many festivals, the Indiana Festival, the Indian Market, and the ever popular Talbot Street Art Fair all top the list of things to do in the summer months. Furthermore, the First Friday Gallery Tour, put on the by Indianapolis Downtown Artists & Dealers Association, provides art enthusiasts with the freedom to stroll through some of the city’s most exciting galleries, including Big Car, Collective Art, LAMP Fine Art Gallery, 4 Star, Kuaba, Herron, and Galerie Penumbra. Likewise, the Stutz Artists Association, an organization devoted to supporting local artists, also opens its studio doors on the first Friday of every month. With its numerous amenities, exciting activities, and that “Hoosier hospitality”, the city of Indianapolis is a wonderful choice for art students looking for exceptional schooling, and a city with resources to further enhance their artistic development.
