The art and nature campus is launching an array of projects to upgrade its offerings and public access, highlighted by an autumnal festival this fall including culinary attractions, horticulture displays, musical performances and films.
The grant from the Indianapolis-based Richard M. Fairbanks Foundation is designated to improve infrastructure such as bike paths and walking trails, add parking and bathrooms, and create an endowment for maintenance and new art commissions.
The Indianapolis Museum of Art on Tuesday unveiled a unifying name for its 152-acre campus. The branding points up IMA's increased emphasis on leveraging its grounds and developing outdoor experiences.
Stuart Alter, the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s first director of technology strategy, said collaborations with partners in the community and with other museums help the institution enhance the visitor experience and make its art available to more people.
