S. Holmes Gazebo

  • Architectural Detailing
  • Temporary

As part of a neighborhood artistic intervention, mosaic artist Nicole Staab installed colorful plexiglass along the top edge of the S Holmes gazebo just under the roof.  Prior to this intervention the historic gazebo blended in with the background.  By adding a colorful border it can be seen easily from the street.  From the inside of the gazebo the sunlight shines through, spraying an array of colors around the interior benches.

The artwork was originally installed in 2020 as part of Indy Art & Seek, a project of the Arts Council of Indianapolis and Keep Indianapolis Beautiful.

Plainfield, IN-based artist Nicole Staab began working with mosaics as a hobby while attending college. As a self-taught artist, she continues to expand her knowledge using anything she can.  From YouTube videos and online classes to books, she is continuously researching and trying new techniques.
