Tee off the summer at the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s new, artist-designed putt-putt course.
Following a tremendously successful first summer, Mini Golf at the IMA is back. The course, located on the IMA’s Alliance Sculpture Court, features brand new holes designed by local and regional artists, along with some familiar favorites. Each hole is inspired by the natural world, as seen across the IMA campus in the gardens, The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park: 100 Acres, galleries and in exhibitions such as Audubon: Drawn to Nature.
Guests will putt through the plains of Africa, discover the king of the jungle, escape a molten carpet of hot lava, float past gleaming glaciers, travel downstream on the White River and weave through cattails and rocks in Indiana wetlands.
The course will be open to the public May 28 through Sept. 3 during regular museum hours, including Thursday evenings until 9 p.m. The course is included with general admission, and IMA members get exclusive access and can play for free all summer long. During free admission times, public tickets will be available for a reduced fee of $8, while IMA members play for free. Exclusive member preview days will be offered May 26 and 27 during regular Museum hours. Snacks and refreshments will be available for purchase on this one-of-a-kind course.
Come enjoy a sunny afternoon with friends or bring the whole family along to explore Mini Golf at the IMA this summer.
Lead support for Mini Golf at the IMA is provided by Barnes & Thornburg, LLP. Additional support is provided by Sun King Brewery and the Volunteers of the IMA. This program is part of the IMA’s ARTx series, made possible by a gift from the Efroymson Family Fund.
