Arts Village Brown County

A CVB task force lead the charge for Brown County to be designated as an Indiana Cultural District. In 2012, the Town of Nashville’s newly formed Arts and Entertainment Commission received the designation for Arts Village Brown County. At that time, only 5 designations had been awarded.

The iconic leaf sculpture, Soaring, soon followed and leaves started popping up around town to draw attention to our artists. The Arts Village brochure and website were created to direct people to the unique handcrafted items that have made Brown County famous.

Arts Road 46

In 2010, the Brown County CVB partnered with Visit Bloomington and Visit Columbus to apply for a grant to create a trail connecting the three destinations, each with their own unique art scene. The grant was awarded and Indiana’s Twisted Trail was developed. A few years later, the trail was re-branded as Arts Road 46.

Since then, the three destinations have collaborated on many projects, including media pitches, trade shows, a website and postcards.

Arts Road 46 is the only cultural trail connecting three of Indiana’s Cultural Districts letting visitors know Southern Indiana boasts a vibrant art scene.

Arts on Fire

In 2015, a group of glass artists were developing the Indiana Glass Trail when Brown County hosted an Arts on Fire weekend. We were excited to work with Leo and Lynn Miller to create the Arts On Fire video featuring Brown County’s glass artists.
