Join us on Saturday, May 4 and Saturday, October 5 from 2-6pm for the Broad Ripple Art Walk presented by Eight Eleven Group! The Broad Ripple Art Walk features neighborhood galleries, boutiques, restaurants, offices, and shops, each hosting their own unique art exhibit or live music.

The Broad Ripple Art Walk is a self guided tour of participating businesses that feature art exhibits of both local and national artists. Participating businesses are scattered throughout the Village, giving you the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful afternoon experiencing Broad Ripple and supporting the arts community.

Need a convenient location to start the Art Walk? Ride the IndyGo Red Line or park for free at the Indianapolis Art Center (820 E 67th Street). Then start your walk from there! You might also want to park at the public parking garage at 6280 N. College Avenue. 

You can enjoy public art on your own any day in Broad Ripple! Click here for a list of public art.
