Stutz Artists Association

The Stutz Artists Association is a non-profit organization created to support and promote the Stutz artists through open studio events and the annual spring open house.

Our mission is to enhance, support, and inspire purposeful engagement in the arts in and surrounding communities through its diverse membership of artists, individuals and businesses, as well as educational and civic partnerships.

The artists are photographers, painters, sculptors, silversmiths and illustrators. They vary in age, ethnicities and backgrounds. Some have advanced degrees in art, and others advance their art in degrees. Some teach classes and hold workshops, and others mentor one-to-one. Some produce work that’s accessible to a broad audience and sell a large amount of work, while others focus on work that’s purely for their own enjoyment.

Many of the Stutz artists have artwork in permanent collections at museums, schools and hospitals. Some are regional and even national award winners.

The Stutz

Home to the Stutz Artists Association . . .

The historic Stutz Building in downtown Indianapolis has been a vibrant artists community for almost 30 years housing emerging and established artists.

The Historic Stutz Business and Arts Center is located at 1060 North Capitol Avenue on an entire city block in downtown Indianapolis. The 400,000-square-foot former car factory was renovated in the early 1990s. Its studios and office space are now home to more than 80 artists, sculptors, photographers, designers, architects and craftsmen.

The exterior of the yellow brick buildings that comprise the Stutz Business Center has changed little since the building served as the manufacturing headquarters for the Stutz motor car (starting in 1911).
