In celebrating the one hundredth running of the Indianapolis 500, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is setting an example of how to collaborate with the arts community.
The Welcome Race Fans: The Arts Celebrate the 100th Running exhibit is now open at the Indianapolis Artsgarden. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway partnered with the Indianapolis Arts Council in calling on thirty three artists to create their version of the "Welcome Race Fans" signs we associate with the month of May. Each artist provided a unique perspective, making this an eclectic and interesting display.
The exhibit will travel throughout Central Indiana, landing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in May. More is available at Welcome Race Fans!
Mark your calendar for the opening of the Peoples 500 Exhibit on May 6th. Curated by local arts expert Shauta Marsh, this project provides a living history of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Jesse Sugarmann created the exhibit from photographs and video of one hundred Hoosiers sharing their memories of the track, while driving a pace car around it. The opening will be held at Big Car's new Tube Factory Art Space. More information is available at The People's 500 Facebook event page.
