10 East Arts prepares for grand opening

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A new art center is getting ready to open on the near-east side.

On Thursday, 10 East Arts announced artists who will receive paid fellowships with the center. Each person will lead a 10-week community art program throughout the year.

Officials with the center say people in the area have asked for more art programs.

The selected artists are Ess McKee for spring, Eduardo Luna and Eve Eggleston for summer, and Micah and Shamira Wilson for fall.

A news release said, “The 10 East Arts HUB Curatorial Fellowship was created to elevate the diverse creative community in Indianapolis and provide meaningful financial support to artists through opportunities to present ambitious and innovative programming. During the 10-week fellowship, each fellow (or pair of fellows) is given a $7,500 stipend and will also have access to $6,000 in additional program funding to implement their creative and artistic vision at The HUB.”

The center, which is located on 10th Street east of Rural Street, will celebrate its grand opening from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. The address is 3137 E. 10th St.
