Arts and cultural spaces help foster a sense of place and identity for both locals and visitors. To tap into this unique ability of the arts, the Indiana Arts Commission in partnership with Visit Indiana launched the Indiana Arts and Culture Passport. In addition to encouraging visitors to discover Indiana’s vibrant creative spaces, this project also aims to highlight public art, organizations and venues that are contributing to the fabric of Indiana communities.

The digital passport works on mobile devices and offers a curated guide of more than 200 arts locations—including  museums, galleries, theatres, music venues, historic and cultural sites, and cultural districts—spread across 92 Indiana counties. Upon successfully completing an order to register, users receive a digital pass on their mobile device via text message or email that is valid through May 30, 2024. Users can use the pass to plan cultural excursions, registering their location as they visit arts destinations. Depending on the usage frequency of the pass, participants can qualify to win multiple prizes, including a custom piece by an Indiana artist. To learn more about this initiative, contact Indiana Arts Commission Marketing and Communications Director Connie Brahm.
