Some churches, temples and other religious institutions occupy beautiful and historic buildings, but have more space than they need or are able to maintain.

Meanwhile, some arts organizations struggle to find affordable places for exhibits, performances, rehearsals, offices and storage.

With a new program, Indiana Landmarks Inc. will seek to pair arts groups lacking permanent homes in the South Bend, Mishawaka and Elkhart areas with religious congregations that have room to spare.

It’s called Art in Sacred Places. Religious buildings often are underused except on weekends and may have interesting space that art groups could use, said Todd Zeiger, northern regional director for Indiana Landmarks.

“It’s a great opportunity to have historic congregations think a little beyond their four walls,” he said.

There will be a free one-hour online video information session about the pilot program on Thursday, April 26. Register to join the information session by emailing Zeiger at:
