Southern Indiana Center for the Arts


The Southern Indiana Center for the Arts was the idea of recording artist John Mellencamp and his mother Marilyn. Through John’s generosity the Center has established itself as a regional center for the visual, performing, and artisan arts. The Southern Indiana Center for the Arts is housed in an 1851 two-story brick mansion owned by recording artist John Mellencamp. It is a Greek revivalist style with Italian details on the porches. The house has a unique history and has changed little over the years.
