SullivanMunce Cultural Center Gets $10,000 from Zionsville
Providing the community with a wide range of culture and arts activities, the Sullivan Munce Cultural Center features exhibits, events and programs that celebrate the historic town “where the past is preserved and the future is embraced.” According to their website, in 1973 the P.H. Sullivan Foundation dedicated the museum and Genealogy Library to the town. The museum houses exhibition galleries, a genealogy library, and archives available to the public.
Contributing to furthering the knowledge of local residents, the mission of the Cultural Center is to increase the appreciation, awareness and understanding of the history and culture of this region. Continuously having lectures, classes, and special activities keeps the history of Zionsville alive.
Before the decision was made to fund the museum, SullivanMunce Executive Director Cynthia Young and board President Kelly Masoncup reviewed several fundraising options. “One of the ideas we tossed around was being a business incubator,” Young said in the Zionsville Times Sentinel. “As we looked through that, we realized that’s not really part of our mission and didn’t have the space, and any build-out would have cost more than what we could have brought in.”
Now, locals can keep enjoying a big part of the community’s history by attending the SullivanMunce Cultural Center while supporting their mission to inform new and current residents about Zionsville.
