Soldiers and Sailors


Indy Evening, Jessica Green

As part of our celebration of the Indiana Bicentennial, the City Gallery presents Soldiers and Sailors, a group show of work inspired by the Circle City's iconic monument. Since its public dedication in 1902, Monument Circle has been an important gathering spot for celebrations, rallies, protests and more. As the work in this show reflects, the monument moves Hoosier artists in a variety of ways. From John Sherman's photograph of the Monument's lights ("Perspective") to David Frohbiter's fictional "Mayhem on Monument Circle, The Great Steam-bot Attack of 1903," to Judy Jarrett Gier's "Mother on Soldiers & Sailors Monument, circa 1930," the Soldiers and Sailors monument stirs memories and sparks the imagination.
