Indianapolis to be hub city for ambitious arts tour

April 1, 2011

If things go to plan, six 18-wheeler trucks full of art—a museum and more on wheels —will be rolling into Central Indiana as part of the ambitious "America: Now and Here" show. While the schedule has yet to be announced, Indianapolis is listed as a hub city on the event's website.

This isn't just a collection of paintings on tour. The exhibition includes visual art, short plays, poetry, music (by the likes of Lou Reed and Roseanne Cash) and film screenings.

Each stop will include two weeks in the main city, a week each in two smaller towns, a week at a state or community college, and a week at a military base.

Don't watch the roads yet, though. The special trucks needed have yet to be built. The plan is for the convoy to hit the road in 2012. 

This May, non-rolling previews will be held in Kansas City, Chicago and Detroit.

The project is the brainchild of artist Eric Fischl. More details on "America: Now and Here" can be found here.
