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:

  1. "This was a very localized, Indiana issue," he said. As in, Indiana failed to expand Medicaid to cover its poor citizens resulting in the loss of essential medical services, including this EMS company. Well done, Indiana GOP. Here are the real death panels: GOP state governments who refuse to expand Medicaid for political reasons.

  2. In the "one for all, all for none" socialist doctrine the sick die...this plus obama"care" equates to caucasian genocide plus pushed flight to cities thus further eroding the conservative base and the continualed spiral toward complete liberal/progressive/marxist America.

  3. There is a simple reason why WISH is not reporting on this story. LIN has others stations in different markets that are affiliated with CBS. Reporting about CBS blindsiding WISH/LIN due to CBS's greed and bullying tatics would risk any future negoations LIN will have with CBS in other markets.

  5. How did Columbus, Ohio pull off a car share service without a single dollar of public subsidies? They must not have a mayor who is on the take like Indianapolis. Daimler Benz offers Columbus residents their Smart Cars on a market-driven basis: "This has some neat features. Cars don’t have to be picked up and dropped off at fixed points. You find one with your smart phone based on GPS, and drop it off anywhere in the service area you can find a spot – even at a meter. These cars aren’t required to feed the meter so you get free on street parking while using them. I was told this system was put in place on a market basis without subsidies – and that the vendor actually pays the city for the use of the meters."
