Stutz Artists Open House

The Stutz Artists Association will host its 15th annual open house April 25 and 26 at the historic Stutz Business Center, 1060 North Capitol Avenue, Indianapolis. Hours are 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. on the 25th, and noon to 5 p.m. the next day.

In addition to more than 60 open artist studios, visitors will see a Beatles-themed show in the second floor “car room,” and a one-piece show in the first-floor Stutz Art Space Gallery.

Artwork ranges from paintings, drawings and photography, to sculpture, installations and fabric. The two-day event is a great way to see artwork in the environment where it’s been created, but it also offers a rare chance to see vintage cars in the historic Stutz car factory, a 400,000-square-foot, four-story structure. Acoustic music and food vendors will be located throughout the building.

Tickets are $10 at Old National Bank branches or $12 at the door. Proceeds support the Stutz Residency Program, a scholarship that provides free studio space and utilities for emerging artists.
