About the Garfield Park Arts Center

The Garfield Park Arts Center engages Indianapolis residents in diverse, artistic and cultural exhibits, arts classes and special events. It features performing arts spaces, visual arts galleries, classrooms and a literary arts library. The galleries, rich with exhibits of local and regional art, are open to the public at no charge.

 

 

About Arts for All
Discover your creative side! Come explore performance, visual ​and language arts through fun, hands-on activities in the Arts for All room at the Garfield Park Arts Center. Whether you are painting, print-making, sand sculpting, playing an instrument or other arts activity, Arts for All activities engage you more deeply with the themes displayed in the Art Center's exhibits. All ages are welcome, but children must be accompanied by an adult. Come be creative with us this weekend!

The Arts for All room is open on Saturdays year round
from Noon-4pm.  Be sure to check for Special Events (when we may be doing other fun, free, creative things) and Holiday Closings.
