When I prepared yesterday’s post about this weekend’s First Friday Art Tour, I didn’t know about a really exciting event – one that features remade salvage from the RCA Dome, shown below before its demolition.
Keep Indianapolis Beautiful is host of the Re-Dome project, competition and exhibit, which will showcase the work of more than 20 local artists, schools and youth-serving organizations. They were challenged to re-use materials from the razed RCA Dome in an artistic manner.
KIB will have a reception from from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 6 at the group’s headquarters, 1029 Fletcher Avenue.
“The chance to meld art with sustainability is an opportunity that we are excited to undertake,” said Andrew Brake, program coordinator with KIB. “This event is one that will surely showcase local artists and organizations in an innovative and artistic way, as well as get the community talking about reusable alternatives.”
I love this idea and I think it’s great that both professional artists and students are participating.
Although the reception will be part of tomorrow’s First Friday Art Tour, the exhibit will run the entire month of August and will be available for viewing through the KIB office.
