Corporate Networking at the IMA

After work golf game? Count us in! Especially if it means a trip to the IMA Mini Golf exhibit running this summer at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. The IMA hosted a corporate networking event at their newest exhibit this week for over 100 Indianapolis professionals.



Attendees had the opportunity to play mini golf, sip Arnold Palmer’s and local Sun King beers, while dining on golf themed food, compliments of Kahn’s Catering.

Each mini golf hold was created by local, regional and national artists. The course is Hoosier themed – the IMA’s way of wishing the state of Indiana a very happy 200th birthday. Even Willie the Whale, a beloved Indianapolis attraction from the Indianapolis Zoo’s previous location on 30th street, made an appearance.


Cardinal 200 features a totem-like cardinal—Indiana’s state bird— that sits on top of a model Indy Car. The cardinal wears a corn crown that hints to the phrase, “There’s more than corn in Indiana,” while the wheels of the car indicate the year 1816, the year Indiana became a state. The whimsical hole was designed by William Denton Ray, a Herron School of Art & Design graduate and a full-time artist / designer. (Par 2) – IMA


Willie the Whale brings back the beloved landmark from the Indianapolis Zoo’s former location on East 30th Street. Willie is back in all his former glory due to the passion and dedication of Quincy Owens and Luke Crawley of Owens + Crawley LLC, Indianapolis. (Par 3) –IMA
