Outside views of '100 Acres'

What the New York Times and others have to say

June 29, 2010

I've already opined on the Indianapolis Museum of Art's new 100 Acres art and nature park (story and videos here. And so have other local publications.

But the IMA is getting attention well beyond Indiana borders for this project. Here's what the outsiders have to say:

The Wall Street Journal. "In its inaugural manifestation, all of the works are thoughtful, though some more aesthetically interesting than others. For the most part, art and nature do walk hand and hand here. The Indianapolis museum is lucky to have such a large, varied and beautiful site as a platform." See full story here

Time Out Chicago. "One piece that probably isn’t going anywhere for a while is Alfredo Jaar’s Park of the Laments—a quiet refuge within a remarkably stimulating place." Full story here.

The New York Times. "The new art park is one of the largest in the United States and rare in its focus on temporary, site-specific commission." Okay, so it wasn't an opinion piece, but it's coverage. Full story here.
