Plans take shape for IMA park

Contractors are laying the groundwork to start construction on the $50-million Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. IMA has chosen a construction manager, The Hagerman Group, and work is slated to begin in Spring 2008. Art & NatureThe land for the park, 100 acres along the White River including woods, wetlands and a 35-acre lake, was given to IMA in 1972. Acclaimed architect Marlon Blackwell, landscape architect Edward Blake and New York environmental artist Mary Miss have been working on the project. Miss designed the park’s gateway, a 1,500-foot-long pedestrian bridge (shown here). For more on the plans, visit the park here. What do you think?
