Sometimes the heart calls for moments of contemplation. Alone, in silence or surrounded by people, we can seek meaning by spending time with visual works of art. Whether you are looking for a quiet moment, a conversation with an artist, or you want to spend an evening at the gallery, the Indy Arts Council has you covered.
They’ve put together a special version of Indy’s Guide to the Arts to help you navigate the visual arts in Indy right now: exhibitions and events involving the visual arts.
