Expanding the Meaning of the Brand

An Indiana General Assembly Resolution established Indiana Artisan as the state’s official organization to identify, recognize and promote the work of Indiana’s highest-quality art and food artisans. The Indiana Artisan mission is to develop a brand that helps define this state’s culture through remarkable Indiana-made goods. Art and food jury panels are reviewing applications now, and new Indiana Artisans will be announced in early June.
