About the Wells Community Cultural Center

The Arts Federation owns and operates the Wells Community Cultural Center. Built in the 1920s as a gift to the city from Dr. Albert A. Wells, the building first served as the Albert A. Wells Memorial Library. A Neo Classic masterpiece, the Wells Building has been transformed into a hub of art resources for the region.

The Wells Community Cultural Center features a performing arts space, reception hall, art galleries, multi-purpose meeting rooms, and TAF's office. The three main floor galleries showcase a variety of art disciplines by artists from North Central Indiana. A calendar of exhibitions can be viewed here.

Following a major renovation in 2018, the Wells Building now features amenities tailored for arts and cultural activities. Click through the gallery below to see
