IAC > Grant Programs > Arts in the Parks and Historic Sites Arts in the Parks and Historic Sites

Arts in the Parks and Historic Sites draws upon traditional and non-traditional arts and artists in Indiana, weaving arts into our state’s natural beauty and rural settings. The program provides funding for arts program related projects that encourage the creation of and public engagement with art about the Indiana state park/forest system and historic sites.

Please note: All events are subject to change in time and/or location. For the most up-to-date information please consult with the individual park or historic site.


Arts in the Parks and Historic Sites started as a partnership between the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Endorsed by the Indiana Bicentennial Commission, this program enables Indiana citizens to not only enjoy arts activities at Indiana State Parks, but also celebrates the Indiana Bicentennial, the Centennial of Indiana State Parks, and the 50th Anniversary of the IAC. In CY17 the program has expanded to partner with and include Indiana Historic Sites.
