We are incredibly grateful to present this summary of another successful year.
For those who are close to us, a message of “growth” is not a new one. However each and every year we continue to grow, we’re reminded of how fortunate we are. Fortunate to have an impact on so many; fortunate to have a region that warmly embraces the arts; and fortunate for you, our supporters, who make it all possible.
2022 saw growth in our Arts In Education program, which now serves 83 schools in 14 counties. The number of live performances presented grew to an all-time high of 129 across Honeywell and 11 partner venues in Indiana and Ohio. And the Honeywell Arts Academy continues to grow and reach new audiences.
We hope these highlights emphasize the impact you have on so many people. We appreciate you taking the time to review this report, and as always, we truly appreciate your support!

Arts, education, and entertainment for all.
The Honeywell Foundation, Inc. will be the vibrant, fresh, and consistently relevant cultural hub of Wabash and the north central region of Indiana. With its world-class performing arts programming, innovative and expansive educational outreach, and attractive and well-maintained facilities....
The arts have a proven, substantial impact during formative years by improving academic performance, motor skills, confidence, creativity, focus, and collaboration.
Honeywell Arts In Education is a collection of programs created for educators to reap these developmental benefits in the classroom. Programs are offered at little or no cost to the schools, allowing all students to participate regardless of socioeconomic situations.
The program features initiatives like Visual Thinking Strategies, a nationally-recognized program that uses visual images and facilitated discussion to practice the art of drawing inferences and supporting them with evidence. VTS strengthens the skills of critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and writing.
Other Arts In Education offerings include student art exhibits, curriculum-based theater performances, and an accredited media arts program for high school students.
