The Cultural Complex at the Indianapolis Art Center is located in Broad Ripple Village; it provides a peaceful atmosphere for artists and the public alike to enjoy. Ever since it was acquired by the Indianapolis Art Center in 2003, the Cultural Complex has offered a variety of services and spaces to the Indianapolis art community.
The Cultural Complex houses a large fabric department used by many textile artists in Indy. The fabric department often works in conjunction with the Marilyn K. Glick School of Art to offer art classes in fabric, dye and weaving. This institution provides Indianapolis education for adults and youth, who are interested in learning about the art of working with textiles at a great Indianapolis art school.
The Cultural Complex at the Indianapolis Art Center is also home to the Writer’s Center of Indiana, an Indianapolis nonprofit organization. Because the Writer’s Center of Indiana receives free housing in the Cultural Complex at the Art Center, it is able to offer a variety of programs to the Indianapolis community. Writer’s find that they are nurtured and supported in a beautiful environment that stimulates creativity.
The Cultural Complex also houses studio space for Hoosier artists. With artists and writers working side by side on their respective crafts, the Cultural Complex is a veritable honey hive of creativity and ingenuity. Whether your medium as an artists is prose, acrylics, poetry, oil paints or fabric, the Cultural Complex at the Indianapolis Art Center does its best to provide a safe, productive and positive environment in which to create.
The Cultural Complex is a wonderful place for artists to meditate as they work. With spectacular views of the ARTSPARK, the White River and architectural masterpieces by the world renowned Michael Graves, artists can draw on inspiration from multiple places. In addition, the Monon Trail is just down the block, in case an artist or writer has a block and need to get away and take a walk.
