Indiana Arts & Culture Passport offers new discoveries to visitors – Hamilton County Reporter

Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, the Indiana Destination Development Corporation (IDDC) and the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC), with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, are teaming up to launch the Indiana Arts and Culture Passport.


“From music venues and theaters to museums and more, communities across Indiana are using art as a way to come together and build a sense of place,” Crouch said. “All of these attractions reflect the values ​​of residents and help build a sense of identity for both residents and visitors alike.”

The Indiana Arts & Culture digital passport encourages visitors to discover new places and enjoy some of Indiana’s creative spaces. Visitors can sign up online for the passport and receive custom prizes for visiting multiple destinations across the state. Visitors need to check in from a smartphone at one of the designated passport locations. Participants earn more by visiting more locations.

Visitors who check in to five places will receive an exclusive Indiana Arts & Culture Passport sticker. People who make 15 visits to any of the passport locations will earn a sketchbook, and after 30 visits, participants will receive a tote bag. Check-in to 100 places on the passport to earn a custom piece by an Indiana artist.

“The passport includes over 200 locations across all of Indiana’s 92 counties, so there’s something for everyone to discover no matter what corner of the state they are in,” IDDC Secretary and CEO Elaine Bedel said. “Many of these venues and displays are also public gathering spots, which encourages people to connect with each other and can even boost economic growth.”

With the Indiana Arts & Culture Passport, visitors can explore even more of what Indiana has to offer while supporting the art and culture that make Indiana special.

“Across the state, communities are utilizing art as a powerful tool for community and economic development,” IAC Executive Director Miah Michaelsen said. “We are grateful for the opportunity to help spotlight public art, organizations, and venues that are strengthening the fabric of Indiana communities.”
