By creating connections, art has the power to shape—even define—communities. It connects individuals, governments and businesses like nothing else can, and nowhere can this be seen with more clarity than at Nickel Plate Arts. Our organization serves the communities of eastern Hamilton County, from Fishers to Atlanta. To carry out our mission and spirit of collaboration, we also engage with neighboring cities and towns.
