Call to Artists – Arts Market on The Circle, downtown Indianapolis
A Collaboration between Downtown Indy, Inc. and the Arts Council of Indianapolis
Downtown Indy, Inc. in partnership with the Arts Council of Indianapolis launched a new Arts Market on Monument Circle to help kickstart the vibrancy of our Downtown amidst appropriate safe and healthy precautions. The first event took place on August 20th with 19 artists/booths and 600 guests. Based upon the success of the first event, we are now seeking up to 24 artists to participate in the September 17th and October 15th Arts Market on the Circle events.
Based upon the first Arts Market on the Circle, we expect between 400 and 600 guests at the following events, the majority of which are downtown for work, and a good number of downtown residents as well.
Event: Downtown Arts Market on The Circle
Location: SW Quad of Monument Circle (in front of Emmis)
Parking: Provided (1 vehicle per artist) on Monument Circle on the SE and NW quad curb lane
Schedule: Both the September and October Arts Markets will generally follow this schedule:
Event Time: 4-7 pm

Downtown Indy, Inc. will provide:
The Art Market on the Circle is open to all individual artists and artisans over 18 years of age living in central Indiana, but preference will be given to those living in downtown Indianapolis. All artwork must be original art or fine craft and made by the artist/s and/or artisan/s present at the event. We define “fine craft” as functional objects such as unique one of a kind ceramics, jewelry, etc. and also include creative functional non-art objects such as artisan made soaps, clothing, etc. Imported or commercially made objects will not be accepted.
All 2D and 3D media are welcome. However, due to the nature and timing of the event, it is recommended that all items are offered in an accessible size and priced relative to the environment ranging from the low end of $5 to a median $50 and higher end between $150 and $250.
Artists/Artisans will be selected based upon the quality and uniqueness of their work as well as its appropriateness for a variety of downtown audiences.
