The Stutz Artists
The myriad artists who make up the Stutz Artists Association all share the common love of art but widely diverge from there. They work in a variety of styles, from traditional to contemporary. 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.
Housing the largest group of artists under one roof in the Midwest, the exterior of the yellow brick buildings that comprise the complex have changed little since the Stutz motor car was made here. Located on an entire city block in downtown Indianapolis, the interior of the 400,000-square-foot former car factory has been renovated into studios and office space. The Stutz is now home to artists, designers, architects, creative professionals and other small businesses. In addition to the Open House, the association hosts monthly First Friday exhibitions and offers a range of classes.
On the outside, the yellow brick buildings that comprise the sprawling complex have changed little since the Stutz motor car was made here. Located on an entire city block in downtown Indianapolis, the 400,000-square-foot former car factory has been renovated into studios and offices. Today the Stutz Business Center is the creative working home of many professionals such as artists, designers, architects, filmmakers and more.
