Have you ever wondered how others’ view our city and the amazing Cultural Trail that seems to connect us all? Join us on Friday, October 6th at 7pm at the Indianapolis Cultural Trail Headquarters to see how they are making that vision a reality.
The Indianapolis Cultural Trail Team has teamed up with local artists to portray new, creative and inspiring ways for all to view the trail in ways that have never been seen before; and you are getting the chance to be one of the first to view these one-of-a-kind art pieces at the Cultural Trail Connections Event.
Sun King spoke with Sarah Frey, the Development and Marketing Manager at Indianapolis Cultural Trail, Inc. and learned that not only is this event itself really neat but it also has a really fun backstory. Sarah mentioned that in their office they have a large canvas of the cultural trail map that was created for them around 10 years ago. While this map still depicts the trail well in detail they wanted to put a unique spin on it and see how others would portray the map if given the chance. They researched ideas and came across the Indy Film Fest, which is another inspiring event close to home. Indy Film Fest puts on a show every year called, “The Bigger Picture Show,” where artists get to display their redesign of old film posters and movie covers. After attending and speaking with their team, they decided to get the help of local artists to create the event we now know as Cultural Trail Connections. Artists were supplied with the Cultural Trail image that Sarah has hanging in their office and given free rein on how they wanted to redesign it. These original art pieces, are unlike anything you have seen before.
