Indianapolis-native Emily Kennerk's public art won't be part of the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, a trail spokeswoman said today.
Kennerk proposed sculpture, "Play," depicted five oversized marbles at the intersection of Alabama and Vermont streets and Massachusetts Avenue. Kennerk and trail officials could not agree on the timing or budget for the piece, causing the trail to drop the plans.
Kennerk's was the first public art piece announced by trail officials. The public art advisory committee now will work with other already-vetted artists to find a piece for that section of the trail. The trail's total public art budget is $2 million.
