Indianapolis Motor Speedway

The Museum’s origin is generally attributed to an idea conceived by Anton Hulman Jr. (the Indianapolis Motor Speedway owner) as early as 1947, which likely was refined over the next eight years in discussions among Karl Kizer (owner of Century Tire Co. and the Museum’s first curator), Hulman, and Wilbur Shaw (three-time winning driver) on their various hunting trips in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Reportedly, Kizer offered to donate Fred Frame’s 1932 winning car, which had come into his possession. He also reported that the winning cars from 1911 and 1912, plus Shaw’s victorious Maserati of 1939 and 1940, were readily available. Shaw’s death in October 1954 is often cited as the instigating factor in getting the plans for the museum under way.

The Museum was opened in 1956 to display race vehicles and memorabilia, principally associated with the Indianapolis 500 race. The first Museum building was located at the southwest corner of the Speedway’s property where the Speedway’s Administration Building now stands. It was large enough only to display a few vintage race cars. Before long, it was obvious something more substantial was needed. During 1975, Hulman built the larger, more modern Museum facility within the Speedway oval, its opening coinciding with the United States Bicentennial celebration in 1976.

Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater

Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre was designed as a large-scale earth sculpture with rolling grassy slopes and spectacular Rocky Mountain views. Originally built to host community festivals and symphonic music, it was commissioned by the Museum of Outdoor Arts in 1982 and designed by renowned landscape architect George Hargreaves. Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre received a national award for design the following year from the AIA.

With a seating capacity of 17,000 people, and optimum stage, sound and lighting systems available, Fiddler’s Green is unrivaled in Colorado for its ability to present the leading musical talent on the performing circuit. The amphitheater has grown to incorporate the Museum of Outdoor Arts mission of “making art a part of everyday life” through the merging of architectural, artistic and landscape development concepts.

The adjacent Marjorie Park hosts a variety of artistic offerings viewable to the public and patrons of the amphitheatre hosted by the Museum of Outdoor Arts. With over 200,000 annual visitors attending concerts ranging from contemporary to classical, Fiddler’s Green has developed into a popular setting for any music showcase or event. It is a unique venue to enjoy a night under the stars, music with friends, and the breathtaking views.
