In June 2022, state agencies teamed up to launch the Indiana Arts and Culture Passport.

“From music venues and theaters, to museums and more, communities across Indiana are using art as a way to come together and build a sense of place,” Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch said. “All of these attractions reflect the values of residents and help build a sense of identity for both residents and visitors alike.”

The Indiana Arts & Culture “digital passport” encourages visitors to discover new places and enjoy some of Indiana’s creative spaces, including two locations in Kokomo. Featured in the passport are Kokomo Opalescent Glass and Artist Alley in downtown Kokomo.

The two locations were selected from a large variety of local destinations submitted by the Greater Kokomo Visitors Bureau and Downtown Association.

How to experience the passport

Sign up online for the passport and receive custom prizes for visiting multiple destinations across the state. Visitors need to check-in from a smartphone at one of the designated passport locations.

Participants earn more by visiting more locations.

Visitors who check in to 5 places will receive an exclusive Indiana Arts & Culture Passport sticker.

People who make 15 visits to any of the passport locations will earn a sketchbook, and after 30 visits, participants will receive a tote bag. Check-in to 100 places on the passport to earn a custom piece by an Indiana artist.
