Transformed from a largely abandoned church to a thriving cultural milieu, the Harrison Center is home to Redeemer Presbyterian Church, artist studios and the Harrison Art Gallery. The gallery has become a significant destination, with rotating exhibitions held throughout the year that usually emanate from a theme, lending curatorial cohesiveness and art viewing on a high, yet accessible, intellectual level. A quartet of smaller Harrison Center galleries complement the main venue, including the City Gallery, which celebrates the unique neighborhoods of urban Indy.
