Corporate Support

As Indiana’s premiere destination that provides one-of-a-kind encounters with art and nature, Newfields is a great place to do business.

Whether your interest lies in the exhibitions or programs at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Lilly House, The Garden, The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park:100 Acres or our performance spaces, Newfields sponsors receive a variety of unparalleled benefits. As the only organization in the state where you can enjoy concerts and movies, discover sublime artists like Rembrandt and Maya Lin, stroll the Garden among trees bursting with color, learn about our shared history, or simply gather with friends over a beer or glass of wine, a partnership with Newfields is a partnership in our shared community.

Newfields relies on support from the business community to help maintain its reputation as one of the finest and most energetic cultural campuses in the country. In return, we offer a variety of ways to add value to your company’s business, marketing, and philanthropic goals by connecting you to an array of diverse exhibitions, programs, or signature events.
