PlySpace is a program of the Muncie Arts and Culture Council in partnership with the City of Muncie, Ball State University School of Art, and Sustainable Muncie Corporation.
Muncie Arts and Culture Council
The Muncie Arts and Culture Council seeks to create, educate, advocate, nurture, and inspire integration of the arts via civic initiatives and through engagement with individual artists and arts organizations.
The Muncie Arts and Culture Council is the official “Arts Partner” for the City of Muncie. As Arts Partner, we integrate the arts into municipal initiatives that involve Economic Development and Quality of Place. As an arts alliance, we strive to build community among artists and arts organizations, and be a resource that enables professional growth and opportunity.
City of Muncie
The city of Muncie was incorporated in 1865. Contrary to popular legend, the city is not named after a mythological Chief Munsee, rather it was named after Munsee Town, the settlers' name for the Indian village on the site, "Munsee" meaning a member of the Lenape people or one of their languages.
Ball State University School of Art
The Ball State University School of Art, located in Muncie, Indiana, offers undergraduate and graduate educational opportunities in a wide variety of artistic disciplines including animation, ceramics, drawing, glass, metals, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture and visual communication, among many others. Housed in state-of-the-art facilities on Ball State's campus, the School of Art is united by a commitment to promote craft, advance technical skills, and develop scholarship in traditional and contemporary art forms.
Sustainable Muncie Corporation
The Sustainable Muncie Corporation provides services to the city of Muncie that revitalize low or moderate income communities, provide small business training promotion and incubator space, lend small or micro-business loans, and develop, own, and manage retail and commercial properties or industrial parks.
