Opening Fall 2022

Allen Whitehill Clowes Sculpture Court

Expanded Event Space

The Allen Whitehill Clowes Sculpture Court has been the museum’s busiest, most utilized event and programming space since opening in 2005. It is home to numerous mission-driven public programs and known for being one of the very best events spaces in Indianapolis. In partnership with exclusive caterer Kahn’s Catering, the event space hosts memorable occasions such as parties and wedding receptions, corporate and convention receptions, and more.

Bigger and Better


The Clowes Sculpture Court renovation will expand the facility by moving the current east wall to enclose the entire outdoor One America Terrace facing West Street. Extending the room eastward will enable the Eiteljorg to expand its breadth of education and programming offerings, such as the annual Día de Muertos celebration, Indiana Market and Festival, and a myriad of programs. The expansion will also allow for hosting larger rental and catered events and also accommodate the growth for our annual holiday tradition Jingle Rails: The Great Western Adventure

Bringing the Community Together


“(The Clowes Sculpture Court expansion) allows us to be more creative on using the space and figure out different layouts, bring bigger acts, bring more seats, and do more activities too.”
