Fishers Community Art Master Plan Recognized

This month, the Indiana Chapter of the American Planning Association will award the Town of Fishers the 2014 Planning Award for Outstanding Plan. The award ceremony will take place during the spring conference at Ball State University. In December, Fishers made the landmark decision to implement the Community Art Master Plan, making it the only town in Hamilton County with an approved document outlining its long-term vision for public art. This 2014 Planning Award for Outstanding Plan is a tribute to the organizations that worked together to bring this vision to life. 


“Arts and culture play a key role in creating meaningful public spaces,” stated Town Council Representative David George. “This Plan outlines Fishers’ commitment to community art as an essential component of economic development, and provides opportunities where people can interact with art and one another.”

“The Fishers Arts Council identifies new arts opportunities and connects creative people, organizations, businesses and volunteers together to bring those opportunities to life in Fishers,” explained Fishers Arts Council President Jocelyn Vare. “Seeing this begin as an idea and evolve into a working plan for the community is exciting, and we are very proud to have been a part of the process.”

The Town of Fishers collaborated with The Fishers Arts Council and the Fishers Cultural Tourism Group to take input from the art community with municipal policy, creating a thorough plan with instant credibility. To learn more about the Fishers Community Art Master Plan, or to take part in the conversation about community art, click here.
