The stunning Indiana State Museum is a perfect venue for the Art Fair. Guests can wander through the facility at their leisure and take in the fascinating museum exhibits while they shop for treasures at the Art Fair. Strolling the vast, brightly lit interior of the museum, you will get a good sense of Indiana and Indianapolis history, and the generations of Hoosiers that made Indianapolis society strong.
The 7th Annual Indiana Art Fair presents unique, hand-crafted, inventive pieces from the Indianapolis art community and all around Indiana. Works are priced as low as $10 and the tags go up from there on into the thousands of dollars for a collectible piece of art by a well-known artist.
With so many artists represented, the Indiana Art Fair is comprised of every conceivable creative style of artwork, from wood carvings to paintings, ceramics to mixed media, glass, photography, furnishings and jewelry.
There is a separate section for “surface decorations,” which means anything that can be used as home decor. Another section is reserved for “Fiber Art,” such as quits and wearable art, which is coming into its own these days.
You are sure to find an art object you can’t live without at the 7th Annual Indiana Art Fair, so when you find it, buy it and give it a nice home. You’ll be supporting both the artist, art in Indiana and the Indiana State Museum, plus various Indianapolis educational programs.
