At the end of the Circle City mall, take a left, and walk above the busy intersection into the Arts Garden. Quiet spot to sit and relax, or listen to the occasional musical entertainment. Then take the south-west exit down to the Rhythm Discovery Center to bang on an amazing array of percussion instruments and view their exhibits of historical... More

I never understood what the big deal is with the Arts Garden. There never seems to be any art or anything else located here and is simply a walk through on the way to the Hyatt. No place to sit, eat or anything to see.

for many, this is just a pass through to get to the mall from offices to the north. The various art displays and concerts make it worth slowing your walk and enjoying the experience.

Don't go out of your way to visit. From the street it looks really cool so while we were at the mall, we decided to check it out. We only spent a few minutes here. You can look out over the street and there was a very small art display. Very unimpressive on the inside.

This is a popular venue for Christmas band and choir concerts during December, and for other musical groups to perform from time to time. It is attached to the downtown shopping mall, restaurants and hotels, and close the food court in the mall, so it is a good "rest stop" for shoppers and visitors to the downtown area.

They usually display award winning art made by our city's most talented and promising elementary school children. They have benches so you can sit down and gaze out of the towering glass windows and soak in the streets of Indianapolis below. Sometimes they have music during the lunch hour; it's hit or miss.

I love the Arts Garden over the Christmas season. It is so pretty and bustling with activity. We were there for some great free singing of Christmas carols by youth. It's a great place to take lunch and enjoy how pretty it is and the music is an added bonus. The Arts Garden is also connected to Circle Centre Mall... More

Great views and things displayed vary. It is a great place to grab a coffee and sit. I saw an occasional bird inside while sitting. It is a central area that connects many buildings and the mall

Attended a private event at the Artsgarden and found it to be really beautiful. Glass all around can take advantage of sunset colors. Easy access from the downtown hotels and conneciton to the Convention Center and some of the hotels (Westin and Downtown Marriott) by what seems to be a habitrail for humans. Delicious food by the catering service, very... More
