On November 7, 1883, an exhibition of 453 works by 137 artists opened at the English Hotel on the downtown Indianapolis Circle. It was the first exhibition organized by the Art Association of Indianapolis, which well-known suffragette May Wright Sewell, her husband Theodore and a small group of art-minded citizens had formed a few months earlier. The Art Association of Indianapolis changed its name to the Indianapolis Museum of Art in 1969.
The IMA’s gardens and grounds are renowned for their beauty and history. The 152-acre complex includes: Oldfields, a 26-acre American Country Place estate that has been recognized as a National Historic Landmark, the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s 26-acre main campus and the 100-acre Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park.
On 152 park-like acres minutes from downtown, the IMA offers a variety of event and meeting spaces, including Deer-Zink Events Pavilion, The Fountain Room (formerly Puck’s), Pulliam Great Hall, Garden Terrace, a 600-seat theater, a 168-seat lecture hall and beautiful gardens.
