The Athenaeum ArtSpace’s mission is to introduce the public to work they’ve never seen before by displaying, commission-free, the work of emerging and local unknown artists, in an effort to support the “Sound Mind and Sound Body” concepts that are central to the creation and the history of the Athenaeum. We are working diligently on improving the ArtSpace for artists by raising funds for a hanging system and lighting . The Athenaeum ArtSpace is a partnership between the Athenaeum Foundation and Indy Metro Church.
