About The Center

This facility is the home for area Arts in the Parks classes, ArtWorks and MusicWorks classes. Exhibits change every six to eight weeks. Our Exhibits Program focuses on the work of living Midwestern Artists. The City of Hartford City leased the facility to Arts Place, Inc. in late 2011, the facility being dedicated as an arts center in January of 2013. Over $100,000 was raised from private and local governmental sources to renovate the facility.  The impact of this funding was greatly extended by the nearly 1,000 hours of volunteer time dedicated to the renovation.  In January 2015 city government transferred ownership to Arts Place of the center along with the next door property at 111 West Washington Street.


Monday – Thursday: 3:00-7:00 p.m.

Tuesdays: 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Blackford County Arts Center Performances

The Blackford County Arts Center may not have a theater of its own, but it’s the perfect venue to enjoy an intimate, coffeehouse style performance from local musicians or attend a holiday MusicWorks recital.
