Installation begins Monday on the 500 Festival 50th Anniversary Legacy Art Project at Celebration Plaza in White River State Park (near where the big guitar player was last year)

So what sort of art does the Festival offer as a gift to the city? The wind-activated piece by Donald Lipski is called “The Tent." It's 43' tall, 14' wide, and will look like that picture you see on the right. Dedication is scheduled for Dec. 2.

You can find more images here.

And more on the artist here.

You thoughts?
  • It will definitely be noticed.
  • It'll be eye-catching, that's for sure. Another prominent pinnacle for our over-wrought cityscape.
  • I like this. Any time a permanent, noticeable, eye catching piece of art can be placed downtown in a traffic area and visible from the road is a good thing in my eyes. Thank you 500 Festival, Inc.
  • First pictures I've seen of it. Hard to say what's going on there.

    Any other links about the project?
  • I found this:
