Indiana Arts & Cultural District
Madison is one of twelve designated Arts & Cultural Districts throughout the state of Indiana.
An Arts and Cultural district is identified as “a statewide leader in cultural development.” Madison certainly stands out due to the awe-inspiring architecture, thriving music scene, momentous murals and more!
Given Madison’s national recognition as the largest contiguous national historic landmark district in the country, it’s natural that the culture and art of this community is rooted deeply in the foundation of the past. But the future has never looked brighter!
In 2019, there were 324 creative jobs in the Madison area. The majority were photographers, followed by writers, musicians, library techs, and graphic designers. As up and coming “Indiana’s Music City,” we expect to see these numbers continue to increase as more and more artists relocate to explore their passion in Madison!
The creative industry earnings were $5.3 million overall in 2019. This is a testament to how the Madison community supports local talent.
