The Anderson Center for the Arts is located in downtown Anderson, Indiana at 32 West 10th Street in the former Carnegie Library building. The building, as Carnegie Public Library, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

History[edit]

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.
