Staff & Board

What does it take to keep the Harrison Center for the Arts running like a well-oiled machine? Honestly, we don’t know. We can, however, tell you that, in addition to twine and chewing gum and rubber bands, keeping the Harrison Center a vital and vibrant part of the Indianapolis arts community is a full-time commitment–and a full-time labor of love.
