Tube Factory Artspace
A public place for culture, community, and creativity.
1125 S. Cruft St.
Indianapolis, IN, 46203
Tube Factory is a 12,000 square foot museum space curated based upon the themes of community, place, memory and mythology. We commission local, regional, national and international contemporary visual and musical artists, borrow artifact-based exhibits and create community-sourced exhibits.
A previously vacant former manufacturing building, it is now a thoughtfully renovated home base for Big Car Collaborative’s work as well as partnership-based community meetings and cultural events.
