If you're looking to explore new artistic vistas this summer, you don't need to look very far.

In fact, a quiet community not twenty miles north of Fort Wayne, in DeKalb county, is home to one of northeast Indiana's best kept "artful secrets."

Housed in the historic Garrett State Bank Building, the Garrett Museum of Art is a budding, volunteer-driven organization, with an aim to enrich the area's cultural landscape for artists and art lovers.

WBOI’s Julia Meek recently met with museum director Jim Gabbard to talk about the museum’s mission and what visitors might see when they arrive. 

Learn more about the Garrett Museum of Art, its hours, and current exhibits at its website.

A Fort Wayne native, Julia is a radio host, graphic artist, and community volunteer, who has contributed to NIPR both on- and off-air for forty years. Besides being WBOI's arts & culture reporter, she currently co-produces and hosts Folktales and Meet the Music.
