47th Annual Broad Ripple Art Fair
May 20-21, 2017
Application Deadline: January 22, 2017
“One artist, one at a time.” This is the core principle of the 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 engage, enlighten and enhance our communities through art education, participation and observation. The 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 47th year, the Art Fair attracts an average of 15,000 patrons and offers an opportunity for the public to meet 225 artists from the U.S. and Canada, sample fine cuisine, enjoy live entertainment, learn about the Art Center, and create their own works of art.
The Art Fair is located on the grounds of the Indianapolis Art Center designed by Hoosier Architect Michael Graves and its 9-acre ARTSPARK, plus the adjacent North Side Optimists Opti-Park, a recreational park. Located in the Broad Ripple Village Cultural District— a cultural arts, shopping, night club, and dining district—the Broad Ripple Art Fair is next to the popular Monon Trail urban greenway.
The 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 not-for-profit community arts organization. Income from the 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.
