Indiana Masterpiece

We are not currently accepting applications for this program.

The Indiana Masterpiece program, in partnership with the Indiana Bicentennial Commission, was launched in Indiana’s Bicentennial year as an on-going, legacy gift to the citizens of Indiana.

Activities showcase the state’s arts history and prominent figures in order to highlight our rich cultural heritage and those who created it. The program is designed to fund and support eligible projects that are of high artistic merit, impact, and educational value, and are publicly accessible to a broad audience.
