Let the Transformation Begin!

Thanks to the generosity of over 130 donors, Lotus is able to begin renovations! At five months in, we are over 2/3 of the way there in meeting our financial goal. Thank you to all who have contributed to transform the firehouse. You or your business can still take part and make a gift today to bring more Lotus to more people, all year round.

Be a Part of This Transformation

Throughout the process there have been people adding their support in big and small ways. Your gifts will quite literally transform our ability to create cultural experiences for you, for children, for our community. Gifts of all sizes make a difference. Donors can leave a legacy in honor of their family, a friend, or a business.
To take a tour of the space or learn more, please contact Development Director Megan Hutchison at 812-336-6599 or megan@lotusfest.org

Renovation Progress  

Over the last month, Lotus staff and volunteers cleared out the space to make way for the renovation. Storage Express and Organized Living have been such valuable partners during this transition period, lending space for Lotus supplies while the work is in progress. Loren Wood Builders has been busy this week knocking down walls and clearing out old pipes and plumbing. We expect the renovations to continue into the late spring/early summer.


We’ll keep sharing updates as the renovation progresses! We offer a heartfelt thank you for your continued support during the Lotus Firehouse transformation and beyond. We look forward to collaborating with you in the years to come!
