New arts map points the way


We’re big believers that the arts – be they public, performing, visual or otherwise – do a lot to help further a municipality’s agenda, and that is the case with Noblesville. We recently received word that the city has joined forces with Nickel Plate Arts to develop a map that pinpoints the many artists and arts experiences in downtown. Well played, we say.

The city stated last week, “Unique shops and artistic spaces are found throughout downtown and the new map will help residents and visitors connect with these attractions.” It’s an opportunity to park the car, put on your walking shoes and take in the talents of so many in our midst. There are loads of galleries, studios, antiques outlets and specialty shops – and all fall under the heading of the arts.

Said Mayor John Ditslear: “Noblesville has long been a community that supports art of all types and the number of locations downtown in which to view and purchase art reflects this. Our goal in creating this map was to help people see at a quick glance all of the artistic options available.” It’s yet another idea whose time has come. The map is available online or by mail. Visit, and click on Recreation Maps at the bottom of the home page. Or, you may choose to call 776.6345 to request a mailed copy.

With the balanced calendar this academic year, Noblesville Schools is closing in on Fall Break. In what we believe is a great move by school leadership, the district is offering families that are not traveling special programs for students in kindergarten through eighth grade (Oct. 14-17 and Oct. 21-24). Information about the programs comes out Sept. 20. We urge you to take advantage of the offerings if you’re not leaving town.
