Indiana University’s Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis has partnered with the Indianapolis Cultural Trail to provide a professional practice opportunity for advanced undergraduate and graduate level students in fine art. Through a grant from Central Indiana Community Foundation (CICF) and a gift of land from the Indianapolis Urban League, students will participate in a competitive request for proposals for temporary public art projects for the site. The winning installation will be displayed for two years.

The first project, “Looking Through Windows” by Michael Kuschnir, was installed April 25, 2012.

From the Artist’s proposal

“My artwork begins with an architectural element that I manipulate through repetition… I took an assortment of existing windows on Indiana Ave and combined them with generic window forms to create a gestural sculpture. The inspiration for this piece came from listening to people of the community talk about this site. Some people reminisced about the past while others talked about the future of this location. I collected these viewpoints as if they are windows into each of us. Now I give the opportunity for everyone to see this neighborhood in these warm embracing colors; an opportunity to look at this community through each other’s lenses.”
