Proceeds from this fundraising event provide critical support to the Indianapolis Art Center’s classes, exhibitions, outreach and other community programs.

Art From the Heartland features work from some of the Midwest’s most innovative and prolific artists. The exhibition serves as the Art Center’s survey on the state of contemporary art in the Midwest, highlighting artists from Indiana and surrounding states.


This year’s exhibition was juried by Indy Moca's Gallery Director Mike Barclay, who selected 80 pieces out of a pool of over 650.


Also opening that night, artwork from the Indianapolis Art Center’s SMART Program. The SMART program (Supportive Mentoring through ART) is a unique partnership between the Indianapolis Art Center, Starfish Initiativeand Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana. It is a year-long structured art program for youth between the ages of 12-18 from underserved areas of Indianapolis with an interest and/or talent in the visual arts. Youth and mentors together attend a series of specialized art classes in a variety of mediums at the Art Center.
