There’s a New Neighbor in Town!

You may have seen him around the Harrison Center’s City Gallery -- or riding his bike through Indianapolis. He is friendly and sparks up a conversation with everyone he meets. A senior at Covenant College, Caleb Keitt is a Creative Placemaking Intern at the Harrison Center.

This summer Caleb will reside in Indy, but he calls his birthplace, McDonaugh, Georgia, his home. He is an art major, and he enjoys doing graphic design, illustration, and photography. This past spring, Caleb completed a 48-hour artist’s residency at the Center, where he put his skills to work. He fondly remembers riding a tandem bike in the Alvord Street Parade as one of the best moments of his residency.

There are endless reasons to love the Harrison Center, but for Caleb, it’s the vision, versatility, and the mission. He admires the staff for their courage to do what’s never been done before. Caleb envisions a world where people can appreciate each other’s differences, and he hopes to make strides toward building communities like these in Indy as a Creative Placemaker. Through this internship, he wants to learn how to bridge the gaps that divide people in the Indy neighborhoods. He’s also itching to “create some colorful art,” like some of these designs of his:

Caleb is a connoisseur of Spotify playlists. He loves fashion. His favorite movies are Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Laughter, smiling faces, listening to and telling stories, and sharing music are all things that make his heart sing. Generous and kind, Caleb is a Type 2 on the Enneagram test; his Myers-Briggs personality type is ENFJ, and he is a true Virgo. If he could be whatever he wanted to be, he would be the host of a variety show (à la Steve Harvey or Nick Cannon).

If you stop by the Harrison Center or one of our events this summer, make sure to say “hello” to Caleb!
