INDIANAPOLIS (Sept. 20, 2023) – Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, Indiana Destination Development Corporation (IDDC) and Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) are updating and relaunching the Indiana Arts and Culture Passport, sponsored by Minnetrista Museum and Gardens. Current Indiana Arts & Culture Passport holders will need to sign up for a new passport following the re-launch on Sept. 25, 2023.

“From music venues and theaters, to museums and more, communities across Indiana are using art as a way to come together and build a sense of place,” said Lt. Gov. Crouch, Indiana’s Secretary of Agriculture and Rural Development. “All of these attractions reflect the values of Hoosiers and create an identity for residents to enjoy and visitors to experience.”

The passport encourages visitors to discover new places and enjoy some of Indiana’s creative spaces. Sign up online for the passport and redeem prizes for visiting multiple destinations across the state. Visitors can check-in from a smartphone at all designated passport locations to earn points. After accumulating enough points, participants can redeem custom prizes curated for the Visit Indiana Passports from an online marketplace within the passport.

“The updated passport includes almost 200 locations across the state of Indiana, so there is something for everyone to discover no matter what corner of the state they are in,” said IDDC Secretary and CEO Elaine Bedel. “Many of these venues and displays are also public gathering spots, which encourages people to connect with each other and can even boost economic growth.”

“Across the state, communities are utilizing art as a powerful tool for community and economic development,” said IAC Executive Director Miah Michaelsen. “We are grateful for the opportunity to help spotlight public art, organizations and venues that are strengthening the fabric of Indiana communities.”
