The historic former car factory that houses artists’ studios will come alive for a weekend in the spring. More than 70 artists will welcome visitors to their studios at the 22nd annual Raymond James Stutz Artists Open House April 25-26, 2014.

The event began in 1993 when building owner Turner Woodard, an abstract painter himself, joined with a few other artists to host an open house. They threw some beer on ice in a plastic kids swimming pool and invited some friends.

Now, the event attracts 5,000 people every year, bringing to the historic Stutz building art lovers of all types who welcome the chance to wander through artists’ studios.

“Lots of people have been to art galleries and art fairs, but what’s different at the open house is that you get the chance to see where and how the work is created,” said JanettMarie, co-chair of the 2013 event.

The open house is an opportunity to see artwork in the settings where it’s created. Artwork ranges from paintings, drawings and photography, to sculpture, jewelry and furniture. The event also offers a rare chance to see vintage cars on display in the historic Stutz car factory.

Friday night, the event includes live music, including electric violinist Cathy Morris, and a chance to try painting with Wine and Canvas. Saturday afternoon features musical guests Andra Faye & The Rays, hands-on painting with Cookies and Canvas, and free ice cream beginning at 2 p.m. while supplies last.

Housing the largest group of artists under one roof in the Midwest, the exterior of the yellow brick buildings that comprise the complex have changed little since the Stutz motor car was made here. Located on an entire city block in downtown Indianapolis, the interior of the 400,000-square-foot former car factory has been renovated into studios and office space.
