High Art Exhibit Up In Indy

People driving around Central Indiana should be able to enjoy a new public art project. High Art features paintings, drawings and designs of Indiana artists posted on billboards. 

Dave Lawrence, CEO of the Indianapolis Arts Council says that is one of the reasons the exhibit is so unique. 

"We've been looking for the last two years, ever since the Super Bowl, to come up with new temporary public art projects to keep the conversation about public art in Indianapolis going." explains Lawrence.

The 10 pieces will rotate throughout the year as different sites become available.

The Arts Council partnered with Clear Channel Outdoor for the display that aims to get people talking about public art. 

The works are also online for public viewing at indyarts.org.
