    About the Indianapolis Art Center
    “One artist, one at a time.” This is the core principle of the Indianapolis Art Center’s OneAmerica Broad Ripple Art Fair. We value fine art and fine craft by individual artists or collaborative teams who both create the work personally and sell it directly to the retail customer, and we ask all of our participating artists to share this value.
    The mission of the Indianapolis Art Center is to inspire creative expression in all people. The OneAmerica Broad Ripple Art Fair was created in 1971 by Marjorie Beal, who envisioned an event that would showcase local artists and be hosted by the Art Center (then Indianapolis Art League). Now celebrating its 50th year, the Art Fair attracts an average of 16,000 patrons and offers an opportunity for the public to meet artists from the U.S. and Canada, an array of food offerings, craft beer and wine, live entertainment, and to learn about and experience the unique mission of the Art Center.
    The Art Fair is located on the grounds of the Indianapolis Art Center designed by Hoosier Architect Michael Graves and its 9.5-acre ARTSPARK. Located in the Broad Ripple Village Cultural District— a cultural arts, shopping, night club, and dining district—the Indianapolis Art Center is next to the popular Monon Trail urban greenway.
    The OneAmerica Broad Ripple Art Fair is a gated event ($13 presale and $15 day of) that is the largest annual fundraiser for the Indianapolis Art Center, a non-profit community arts organization. Income from the OneAmerica Broad Ripple Art Fair is used to support our Outreach Department, year-round classes, exhibitions, lectures and workshops that promote the creation and appreciation of art.

    Jury Process
    Artists applying to the 2021 Art Fair will be juried by an Artist Committee Panel. All applicants must apply through ZAPPlication in the category or categories appropriate to their work. Jury-exempt invitations are extended to select artists including, but not limited to, the 49th OneAmerica Broad Ripple Art Fair award winners. Less than 5% of the artists were jury exempt in 2019. All other applicants are juried to ensure a quality Art Fair.
    Jurying for Awards will take place on Saturday, May 15th. During the Fair, an independent on-site juror will judge booths and award cash and re-invite prizes totaling $2,000.
    Please Note: The number of artists accepted and exhibiting at the fair will depend largely on any and all future safety precautions and standards in place due to Covid-19. This may mean that the number of artists will differ from previous years to allow for proper social distancing and safety.

    Notifications
    Artists who applied for an Artist Booth will be notified through ZAPP by email of the jurors’ decision. Artists will be notified on Friday, January 29, 2021.

  • Security & Artist Parking
    Overnight, police security will be provided Friday & Saturday. All efforts to secure artwork by closing up tent walls is expected.
    Due to the urban environment, and being a walking community, parking is all in the streets. Ample parking can be found in the neighborhoods adjacent to the Indianapolis Art Center. Unfortunately, handicap accessible parking for artists cannot be provided for spatial and logistic reasons. A timely arrival should help avoid a need for parking more than a block away. Artists who have large trailers are welcome to park in the streets.Electricity
    Electricity is not available to artists.
