about - Penrod Society, Indianapolis, IN
Please join The Penrod Society on Saturday, September 12, 2015, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET, on the beautiful grounds of the Indianapolis Museum of Art in Indianapolis, Indiana, for the 49th annual Penrod Arts Fair! For nearly 50 years, the Penrod Arts Fair has been an Indianapolis institution and a tradition cherished by patrons and exhibitors alike as one of the largest and best single-day, outdoor art fairs in the Midwest. Come join us this fall, and see why the Penrod Arts Fair is truly “Indiana's Nicest Day!” We are looking forward to seeing you there!
A select number of interested applicants will be invited to participate in our third annual “Evening with Penrod at the IMA” event, which features local food and beverages, performing art, and artist booths. “Evening with Penrod” will take place in the Yellow artist area of the Fair grounds the night before the Fair, Friday, September 11, 2015, from 6:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. ET (end time will be 8:30-ish p.m. ET for participating exhibitors).
The Penrod Society is an Indianapolis-based, all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization, whose mission is to support arts-related cultural and educational activities in Central Indiana. The Society supports artists, students, arts organizations, and various other not-for-profit organizations whose missions and programming include arts-related cultural and educational activities. The Penrod Society achieves its mission, in part, by hosting various events and distributing the proceeds through a grant process.
For each of the nearly 50 years since the Society's founding, the Penrod Arts Fair has been the Society's signature event and most significant fundraiser. And, for the last several years, the Society has kicked off the Fair with its high-end “Evening with Penrod at the IMA” event the night before the Fair. “Evening with Penrod” has quickly grown into a popular and well-attended event for supporters and patrons of the arts.
