Have you ever wondered what’s going on in the large warehouse at the corner of 10th and Capitol in downtown Indianapolis? It’s called the Stutz Business Center, and was once the factory where the Stutz car was produced. Now it’s home to a new kind of manufacturing–that of art, not cars.
The Stutz Artists Open House takes place April 29-30, and is a chance to wander the building and take in many of the beautiful works created there on a daily basis. The artists with studios in the space open their doors to the public to mix and mingle and sell their wares. This year, a record number of artists (80) will participate.
Art will include everything from jewelry to furniture, photography to sculpture, and prices range from $12 to $10,000. Live music and food vendors will create a lively atmosphere of fun throughout the building. And antique cars will be on display as a throwback to the building’s roots.
The Stutz Artists Open House will run from 5:30-10:30 p.m. on Friday, April 29 and 2-7 p.m. on Saturday, April 30. Cost is $12 at the door, or $10 for advanced tickets available at any Old National Banking Center. Children under 12 are free on Saturday.
The Stutz is located at 212 W. 10th Street in Indianapolis. Parking for the Open House is free in designated lots along Capitol and Senate Avenues and along 11th Street.
