History

The center is located in the Beaux-Arts-style former Carnegie library. Andrew Carnegie provided a $50,000 grant for the building's construction. The building features a 35-foot (11 m) high rotunda with a 40-foot (12 m) stained glass domed ceiling and marble floors. The library moved to a new facility in 1987.

The museum specializes in collecting Indiana and contemporary art.
