Southern Indiana Center for the ArtsTu-Sa noon-5pm or by appointment Whether you’re interested in art, music or pottery classes or just a tour, this is the place! The Southern Indiana Center for the Arts was established in 1991 through the generosity of Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame singer, John Mellencamp. The house, owned by John and leased to The Southern Indiana Center for the Arts for $1 per two-year lease, has grown as a regional arts center for various fine arts media as well as a center for performing, architectural, and literary pursuits. The Art Center boasts the only permanent Mellencamp painting collection in the world. Marilyn Mellencamp, John’s mother, exhibits her work along with her son’s. The Center’s main exhibition space is housed in a beautiful two-story 1851 brick Greek Revival style home with Italianate detailed porches. The galleries feature ever-changing exhibits, and there is always work for sale by local and regional artists in a variety of mediums. The Center offers a studio for instruction or practice, a student gallery and an art resource room. Demonstrations, private instruction, hands-on classes, recitals, musical programs and Youth Summer Art Camps are also offered at SICA.
