Gifts that Keep on Giving!
Your support this Giving Tuesday and every day helps ensure the continued vibrancy of our community through exciting and innovative public arts experiences for all!
Your gift to Muncie Arts & Culture Council makes it possible for members of our community to enjoy one-of-a-kind experiences with art and culture. Help us raise $5,000 to fund our ongoing public programs including the Mayor’s Arts Awards, PlySpace Artist Residency, That One Film Festival, Box! Box!, and the Professional Development Artist Series. But your impact goes far beyond what we’re able to share with you day to day.

Muncie Arts and Culture Council is the Arts Partner for the City of Muncie, Indiana. Home to four locally designated cultural zones, Muncie is a vibrant center for arts and culture with an impressive heritage of advocacy for the visual and performing arts.
Downtown Cultural Zone
Muncie’s Downtown is a hub for art galleries, locally owned restaurants and businesses, theatre, arts instruction, photography, street festivals, nightspots, and outdoor music concerts. The Downtown area is home to numerous non-profit organizations and businesses and is host to events such as receptions, proms, galas, concerts, guest speakers, and parades.
Ball State University Cultural Zone
Ball State University features art galleries, musical performances, theatre shows, and lecture presentations. Numerous student and professional and national touring productions are performed throughout the year. The surrounding area offers restaurants, shops, night spots, and outdoor events.
Minnetrista Cultural Zone
Along the banks of the White River, Minnetrista and the surrounding area offers museum exhibits, beautiful gardens, and events such as the Farmers Market, Garden Fair, and outdoor music performances. The legacy of the Ball Family is showcased through their historic homes, and various buildings and areas of the campus are often the site of many social group meetings, trainings, weddings, birthdays, and more.
Heekin Park Cultural Zone
Featuring historical statues and monuments, picnic areas, outdoor events, and playgrounds, Heekin Park is at the southern tip of Muncie’s Cultural District. The Cultural Trail offers bike traffic to the park by way of Hackley Street, and Heekin Park is home to several non-profit organizations.
