Noblesville Cultural Arts District recognized at Statehouse

By Kathy Kreag Richardson
Indiana State Representative, District 29


Noblesville is fortunate to be home to a thriving art community and one of the seven cultural arts districts in Indiana. Recently at the Statehouse, I had the pleasure of presenting our Noblesville Cultural Arts District and the dedicated members of the Noblesville Arts Council with a resolution honoring their commitment to the arts and recognizing their contributions to our community.

In 2013, Noblesville saw an increase in art studios and galleries, sparking the creation of an art map to help both locals and visitors navigate the growing Noblesville art scene. That same year, the Noblesville Arts Council was formed. The Arts Council is represented by 19 organizations including artists, art organizations, city and county government groups, the library, local businesses, economic development groups and schools. Along with cultivating the arts in our community, the Arts Council sought to designate a section of Noblesville as a cultural arts district.

In August of last year, a section of downtown was named the Noblesville Cultural Arts District. The area includes parks, art studios, and an amphitheater along the White River.

With the help of different organizations, the city of Noblesville is able to host more than 300 cultural art events throughout the year. Locals and tourists can enjoy painting classes, attend music performances, visit art exhibits, and much more.

Our community benefits not only from the diverse artistic programs that the Noblesville Cultural Arts District offers, but also from the economic opportunities. Visiting tourists support local businesses like hotels, restaurants and other shops. A vibrant community like ours helps attract new residents and employers, and supports existing businesses.

The arts profoundly impact our lives in many ways. Those involved with establishing the Noblesville Cultural Arts District and everyone dedicated to making it a success deserve recognition for their commitment and vision.

For those who have yet to experience the educational and social offerings of our local cultural arts district, please consider exploring all that the area provides. Whether it's a jazz concert, painting class or pottery-making demonstration, the Noblesville Cultural Arts District can help inspire everyone.

Kathy Kreag Richardson is a Republican State Representative from District 29, which includes Noblesville, and has served in the legislature since 1992. She also is the elections administrator for Hamilton County. You may contact her at h29@in.gov.
