Corporate Sponsorships

The Indianapolis Museum of Art is one of the 10 largest and oldest encyclopedic art museums in the United States, serving more than 400,000 visitors and 30,000 school children each year. Encompassing 152 acres, including the Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park: 100 Acres, Oldfields - Lilly House & Gardens, and Miller House and Garden in Columbus, Indiana, the IMA offers a range of innovative public programs. By supporting the IMA, companies assume a critical role in ensuring access to the arts throughout the community.

The IMA actively seeks partnerships with local, regional, and national companies. Whether it is supporting a public program for young adults and families, supporting a headline exhibit, or underwriting costs for educational programming, the IMA’s corporate sponsorship program has variety as well as impact and depth. Our staff collaborate closely with our sponsors, dedicating time and attention to uniquely design each partnership with the sponsor’s community and philanthropic goals in mind. Such partnerships provide companies with unique marketing benefits and exclusive access to IMA resources, staff and donors. Each sponsorship includes a summary of execution, detailing benefit outcomes and project success.
