Chakaia Booker: Mass Transit, a temporary public art exhibition created by nationally renowned artist Chakaia Booker. The New York-based artist is known for her expressive work utilizing tires that are cut, shaped and folded, then woven onto metal frameworks before becoming dynamic, highly textured sculptures. The exhibition opens July 22nd, 2008 and will close on April 1st, 2009. It features 10 towering sculptures (some nearly 10 feet tall) installed throughout Indianapolis. Nine of the artworks are making their premiere in Indianapolis and are installed in the downtown area. The 10th sculpture (an earlier work by Ms. Booker) is located at the Indianapolis Art Center's ARTSPARK (click here for a downloadable map).

The tire sculptures look interesting and I look forward to seeing them. But the ethno-post-shabby-chic getup - wow! There's the art!
