Best of Indy 2018: Best Gallery Honorable Mention
The IAC is one of the largest freestanding community art centers in the Midwest, offering classes, community events, and exhibitions that represent a broad range of contemporary artistic expression. The building itself was designed by world-renowned architect — and Indianapolis native — Michael Graves. The IAC is also known for its ARTSPARK sculpture garden and performance space as well as its high-quality art classes such as glass blowing, oil painting, and metal sculpture. Its exhibitions are equally broad in scope — offering a rich complement to the bustle of activity taking place there on a continuing basis. Kyle Herrington, curator of the Indianapolis Art Center, likes to challenge traditional notions of artmaking in the exhibitions that he’s curated. Sometimes this notion goes to extremes, for example, you might see bunnies fabricated out of dust bunnies. You might wonder how to square such notions with the solidly traditional artmaking being taught at the nonprofit art center, but then you see something like the collage of Indy-based Sivasis that drives a hole through notions of traditional art making.
