Promoting the Arts in
Harrison County since 2005
Harrison County Arts was incorporated in May of 2005 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization to give a handful of community minded artists the opportunity to bring art centered experiences and activities to Harrison County citizens through grants and many volunteer hours. A few years later these volunteers opened The Artisan Center gallery at 117 E. Chestnut St. in Corydon IN.Daily management, Docents, and board members are all positions supported by the efforts of our dedicated volunteers. As our audience and artist members grew we realized that we needed a larger space to meet our goals. In 2020 a plan was put in place to search for a new site. Fortunately the perfect building was right across the street.
We are moving into an exciting new era at Harrison County Arts. In May 2022 we moved into a new building, 137 East Beaver Street, on the Square in Corydon Indiana. In anticipation and preparation for this new chapter at Harrison County Arts we have been very busy rebranding, developing a new website, social media platforms and marketing strategies. We have developed new criteria for membership, exhibits and programming and board participation. Our new location necessitated developing a trained staff/membership, a strategic plan, and business plan to increase our revenue and programming.
Our business and strategic plans are helping us to meet the financial and staffing needs for the new space. The rebranding and marketing plans are helping us bring more awareness to Harrison County Arts on a regional and national level.
Our new space includes invitational, members, and community galleries, giftshop and the Linda Shoults Resource Center. Our plans include artist profiles, an online store, multiple collaborations with regional organizations, exchange exhibits, educational programming, tourism programming, film series, literary programming, performing arts programs and more.
