Mary Anderson Center


Mary Anderson Center

Founded in 1989, the Mary Anderson Center for the Arts, located about 20 minutes north of Louisville in southern Indiana, offers artists from around the world a place where the distractions of everyday life can be erased for a while. The center is located on the grounds of Mount St. Francis, a Franciscan friary and retreat center. It is a secular outgrowth of the vision of the conventional Franciscan Friars, continuing their 700-year heritage of fostering spiritual, cultural, and educational expressions. In serving as host for the Mary Anderson Center, Mount St. Francis offers a setting of unsurpassed calm and beauty for both body and mind.

The name and inspiration for the center came from 19th-century Louisville actress Mary Anderson, who originally owned the 400 acres that became Mount St. Francis. By giving the land over to the stewardship of the friars, she hoped to preserve its natural environment.
