New Public Sculpture

[all images courtesy of the artist]

If you are out and about downtown this weekend, or looking to take a relaxing stroll, you may want to head over to White River State Park and check out the newly installed public sculpture. The new sculpture, "Loader", by local artist Brian McCutcheon shall be hard to miss, a massive, bright yellow, replica of an old Tonka truck turned up on end. This wonderfully playful work may remind some of you of your own childhood, imagination and what it was like to play. And I think the kids would love this piece.

The new, temporary public sculpture can be found on the Washington Street pedestrian bridge directly behind the zoo.

I LOVE this sculpture. Any idea how long it will be up?

I talked with Brian today and the sculpture is currently scheduled to stand in its current location until April of 2010. So we certainly have some time to enjoy it as we await his future public work for the new Indianapolis airport.

There's also a show of 17 public sculptures by 16 artists at the University of Indianapolis that looks interesting . . . Anyone been to see it yet?

McCutcheon's "Loader" looks to be a wonderful addition to the Washington Street bridge exhibition. It will give me another reason to revisit one of my favorite places in the city.
