Welcome to Newfields. Whether you are looking for experiences with art, nature, food, or performance, you will find a variety of experiences throughout our 152-acre cultural campus. We invite you to explore all that Newfields has to offer, including our galleries at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, The Garden, Lilly House, The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park: 100 Acres, and our dynamic performance spaces.
As the Indianapolis Museum of Art has grown to become an internationally renowned museum, we now turn our attention toward increasing our emphasis on combining art with nature. This combination of art and nature was always part of the original vision—and now we see a vision for the next fifty years.
The galleries are surrounded by gardens, water features, over a hundred acres of woodland filled with surprise and beauty. The campus itself is ideal for performances, afternoon walks, kite-flying, cloud-gazing, memory-making, new-idea-having. There’s a mansion to stage unforgettable events, restaurants for relaxing, bars for microbrews and friendships.
Newfields is a setting where it’s easy to make connections of all sorts. Like no place else in Indianapolis.
