What is Nickel Plate Arts?

Art can shape communities to make them stronger and more vibrant. Nickel Plate Arts supports, promotes and provides outstanding arts experiences along the 30-mile historic Nickel Plate Railroad in Fishers, Noblesville, Cicero, Arcadia, Atlanta and Tipton.


Art lovers, DIY dabblers, serious patrons and accidental passersby find reasons to return to our historic campus. Why, you ask?


Raising up artists is part of our mission. If you’re an artist, we can help support you, too. Curious to know how we do it?


Bringing like-minded arts organizations to the same creative table makes us all stronger. Can we offer you a seat?


Art transforms places. Our corporate sponsors are forward thinkers, making a real difference in their communities. Ready to join them?
