The Muncie Arts & Culture Trail aims to broaden the economic development opportunities within Muncie by connecting the city’s premiere arts and cultural destinations, including Ball State University, downtown Muncie, Minnetrista, and Heekin Park, through a series of inter-connected experiences which reinforce the city’s heritage while providing a key recreation amenity for the community. Beginning in 2014 with the designation of Muncie’s four cultural zones, continuous and collaborative efforts to bring MACT to life should see construction begin in 2020.
