Gallery Forty-Two

Indianapolis/Central Indiana



Gallery Forty-Two invites you to immerse your guests into its world-class, historic space, which is unlike anything else in the city. The unique and intimate setting, coupled with exceptional works of art by preeminent artists, lends an exquisite backdrop to your wedding celebration. Past and present meet to create an immersive and captivating experience in this stunning art gallery located in downtown Indianapolis’ oldest-surviving commercial building. Offering more than three thousand square-feet of gallery and event space, Gallery Forty-Two's new renovation honors both the legacy of the historical property, and the fine art traditions of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The one-of-a-kind art gallery is the ideal venue for couples seeking a smaller, yet dynamic, space to host their ceremony, reception, or combination of the two. The newly restored antique bar is great for a pre-function cocktail hour. When you host your special day at Gallery Forty-Two you will have the ability to celebrate in a distinctive setting with the options of bringing in your own caterer and enjoying fine art as your backdrop, bringing in your own décor, or styling a creative mixture of both.
