New Circle Centre display promotes Indy attractions

A formerly lifeless stretch of wall on the northern edge of Circle Centre mall is now an engaging tribute to three of the city's most notable attractions. The new display, which spans three giant windows of the façade along Washington Street near Illinois Street, is a project of the Convention & Visitors Association and Simon Malls, in partnership with the Indianapolis Zoo, the Indianapolis Museum of Art and the Children's Museum of Indianapolis. The displays were designed by locally based Young & Laramore and include a leaping dolphin, a Modigliani oil painting and a T-Rex skeleton in the top windows. The lower windows include quotes about the Zoo, IMA and Children’s Museum on top of large photos. What a great way to remind visitors of three attractions requiring a short drive from downtown.

  • 6 months before they switch them to off premise advertising for the Racinos.
  • Saw these the other day and thought they were really nice! Great use of that space.
  • Looks nice.

    Doubtful visitors will connect these pictures with the Indianapolis Zoo, the Indianapolis Museum of Art or the Children's Museum since their are no logos or mention with this expensive window art.

    Perhaps the ICVA should be more careful with their limited marketing dollars.
    • Thanks for clarifying the advertising in the lower windows. Nice job.
    • Common Sense: The museums and Zoo are mentioned on the lower windows.
    • Seems like the pictures should be three things seen often in greater Indy: A cheap, vinyl village house; a pan handler and an Applebee's (or Starbucks or Pier One or some other chain.)
      • Wow, you are right. I mean those are never seen in other cities. Blog, get original or get out. Your vague attempts at humor are incredibly stupid.
      • These look great and really liven up the corner. I'm sure anyone with common sense would be able to figure out what they are promoting. Kudos to all involved.
      • I think this looks great and really adds to this section along Washington Street. Thanks for sharing.
      • I always thought Indianapolis Downtown INC., should install kiosk with flat screens in high traffic areas so people from out of town can stop and see what else there is to do in Indy. They have these in Chicago and they are great, why not here? Just loop a dvd and there is no need to hire anyone to sit there.
