In 1934, the Great Depression was creating a new brand of starving artist. Studios sat over garages filled with the smell of exhaust, and potbelly stoves kept models from having goose bumps. As a member of the Work Progress Administration, artist William Kaeser helped develop a network to solve problems found when trying to share art with the public. From this network, he and other local artists founded the Indianapolis Art Center, which has grown to a current faculty of 150 artists. The center continues Kaeser’s mission of engaging the community by creating opportunities for artists and teaching creative skills through classes and camps. Studios allow artists to design their own works using watercolor, bronze casting, woodworking, and metalsmithing, which they can submit for judgment in annual student shows and Supreme Court briefs. The Art Center building houses open spaces for studio work and exhibitions, along with a library and classrooms dedicated to different crafts. Renowned architect and Indianapolis-native Michael Graves designed both the facility and the attached ArtsPark. A 12-acre landscape dotted with more than 27 interactive sculptures, ArtsPark captivates visitors with its playful designs. ArtsPark also provides a natural setting for concerts, festivals, and the Broad Ripple Art Fair, which collects artwork from more than 225 North American artists.
