Elsewhere at ibj.com, Jennifer Whitson reports on the Arts Council of Indianapolis’selection of two projects as winners in this year’s “Great Ideas” contest.
She writes: “Indianapolis-based sculptor Jeffrey Martin wants to build two stylized silos along the Monon Trail, just south of the Indiana State Fairgrounds. "Urban Silos" would include reflective material lining the inside and a viewing bench where pedestrians could sky gaze.
Hammond-based artist Tom Torluemke will work with a neighborhood around Kennedy-KingPark to plan, make and then install a luminary display made up of 55-gallon white drums with patterns drilled into them.”
I thought you might want to get a first look at the plans for both projects.

A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Indiana University, he has been running his own ad/PR/interactive agency, Hetrick Communications, since 1994. He’s been writing IBJ’s “Notions” column since 2000. Before launching his own shop, Hetrick worked as a mayoral press secretary in Fort Wayne, as a principal and associate creative director of a $50 million New England ad/PR agency, and as head of advertising and PR for Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. He’s also a tireless public servant, a passionate advocate for a variety of causes, and has won many awards in journalism, advertising, PR and public health (including IBJ’s Health Care Heroes Award). Hetrick is the father of twin sons (one writer, one photographer), loves reading and hiking, and lives downtown with his wife, Cheri O’Neill.
