Bringing art to people and people to art


Video look at our plans by Kurt Nettleton from No Brakes FUTURE section.

Don’t miss No Brakes at University of Indianapolis

It all started in 2004: a group of artists got together at the Murphy Art Center to begin making creative things happen in Indianapolis. A decade later, thanks to amazing partners, friends and supporters, Big Car is a thriving non-profit engaging people through art in innovative ways. You can explore and participate in this story at the University of Indianapolis through Sept. 26. The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays, and until 9 p.m. on the nights of Monday, 9/15; Wednesday, 9/17; Thursday, 9/18; ​and Monday, 9/22.

Check out great coverage in NUVO (cover story and sidebar), Sky Blue Window, and The Indianapolis Star (story and photos), and The Art of the Matter on WFYI (our part at about 36 minutes in). And check out our own pictures from the night here.

Big Car’s 10-year celebration and exhibit are made possible with love from: Harding Poorman / Indy Mod Homes / SmallBox / Buckingham Foundation / Sam Sutphin & Kerry Dinneen / Magnet Films / The Alexander / University of Indianapolis
