What a Weekend!
Everyone knows they can see the Harrison Center's 36 artists right here on open studio nights, but this weekend you'll have an opportunity to see many of them out and about in the city, too.
This Friday and Saturday, a don't-miss installation that is part of the city-wide IN lightIN Festival is 2058: The First September Without Ice, by Quincy Owens and Luke Crawley. Eighteen illuminated icebergs fabricated with metal and plastic will float in the canal. Not just beautiful, this installation carries a message about climate change. Read more here.
On Saturday night in Tarkington Park in the Great Places 2020 district of Maple Crossing, Stefan Eicher and Asa Gauen plan to light up the sky and aim to break the world record for most sparklers lit simultaneously with 38th and Shine. Eicher and Gauen were the winners of last February's 5x5 Ideas Competition. There is still time to sign up to be a part of this celebration of place! More information is available on the 38th and Shine website.
Finally, on Sunday, the 7th Dig In—A Taste of Indiana takes place in Military Park. Artists have been paired with chefs for this annual event and a number of our HCA artists are participating. Look for Johnny McKee, Lorie Lee Andrews, Quincy Owens, Lauren Ditchley, Nathan Foxton, Chad Campbell and Emma Overman.
Catch them all, but don't forget to come back to the Harrison Center next Friday, September 2nwhen our roaming artists will be back in their studios for The Universal Anthology artist reception and open studio night.
