Do you like this story?
Your thoughts. We want inside your head. Feedback. Dialogue. Voices. We want ‘em all. Good, bad and anywhere in-between.
On the Cusp (in collaboration with the Arts Council of Indianapolis) wants thoughts and stories from people who have encountered the temporary public art exhibitions that have been produced through the Public Art Indianapolis program.
These programs include:
2005: Tom Otterness in Indianapolis, an exhibition of 25 of the sculptor’s satirical bronzes.
2006-2007: Julian Opie: Signs, the British artist’s largest public project to date anywhere in the world.
Julian Opie: Signs opened last September with 11 installations of art – 10 in downtown locations and one at the IMA. The 10 downtown installations remain up through September 1st of this year. Julian created several new art installations specifically due to the opportunity provided to him by the Arts Council of Indianapolis and the Indianapolis Cultural Development Commission. The exhibition has received media attention locally, nationally, and international including coverage in our Indianapolis Star, the UK’s Guardian and most recently the May issue of Art + Auction magazine. To learn more, visit www.indyarts.org/JulianOpie.
But we want to hear your stories, comments, and desires about future projects and exhibitions in the public realm. What did you like? Hate? Love? Didn’t get? Think this was a good exhibit for Indianapolis? Why? Why not? Do you want to see this kind of exhibition program in the public realm continue?
Please keep all commentary respectful. This will be monitored. Thank you!
