Now celebrating its 49th year, the Indianapolis Art Center's OneAmerica Broad Ripple Art Fair attracts an average of 16,000 visitors and offers an opportunity for the public to meet 200 fine art & craft artists from the U.S. and Canada.
The OneAmerica Broad Ripple Art Fair is located on the grounds of the Indianapolis Art Center designed by Hoosier Architect Michael Graves and its 9-acre ARTSPARK, plus the adjacent North Side Optimists Opti-Park, a recreational park. Located in the Broad Ripple Village Cultural District- a cultural arts, shopping, night club, and dining district-the Indianapolis Art Center is next to the popular Monon Trail urban greenway.
The OneAmerica Broad Ripple Art Fair is a gated event ($13 pre-sale and $15 day of) that is the largest annual fundraiser for the Indianapolis Art Center, a non-profit community arts organization. Income from the OneAmerica Broad Ripple Art Fair is used to support our Outreach Department, year-round classes, exhibitions, lectures and workshops that promote the creation and appreciation of art.

Artists applying to the 2019 Art Fair will be juried by a panel of three judges. All applicants must apply through ZAPPlication in the category or categories appropriate to their work. Jury-exempt invitations are extended to select artists including, but not limited to, the 48th OneAmerica Broad Ripple Art Fair award winners. Less than 5% of the artists were jury exempt in 2018. All other applicants are juried to ensure a quality Art Fair.
Jurying for Awards will take place on Saturday, May 18th. During the Fair, an independent on-site juror will judge booths and award cash and re-invite prizes totaling $2,000. Award-winners will be re-invited to the 2020 OneAmerica Broad Ripple Art Fair.
