Localized: Garfield Park Artists Celebrate Indy's Bicentennial
Curated by a committee of neighborhood artists in collaboration with the Garfield Park Arts Center and Big Car, this exhibition will feature artwork in a variety of mediums by local artists that reside in Garfield Park. The pieces aim to celebrate Indianapolis’ Bicentennial through the lens of these artists by exploring history, culture, and the environment of Indianapolis and Garfield Park, Indianapolis’ oldest park. Furthermore, artists will reflect on 2020 current affairs including the pandemic and protests. Artwork will be displayed online on the Garfield Park Arts Center and Big Car’s websites.
For the best viewing experience, please view the exhibit on a computer.
