COVID-19 forced many community arts organizations to change the way they work with neighborhoods. Cathead Press on East Washington Street is an active community center for the Englewood neighborhood -- offering professional and public printmaking studios, youth programs and gallery space. The nonprofit recently opened a similar space on East 10th Street.
From WFYI's Arts and Culture Desk, Jill Ditmire spoke over the phone with Cathead Press Executive Director Dominic Senibaldi. He and program director Liz Wierzbicki also teach part time at Herron School of Art and Design. Both were navigating online courses for their IUPUI students and rethinking the Cathead Press outreach, when they were asked to curate art for street-level storefront windows on East 10th Street.
The 10 East Arts Windows offer painting, collage, video and light installations. They can be safely viewed from your car or on foot. Listings of the storefronts can be found on the 10 East Arts website and Facebook page.
