I have so many memories of visiting our public spaces as a child – and arts & culture is at the center of all of them. Our public spaces should invite, include, represent, and celebrate all residents in our city. They are community canvases for experiences that express who we are and what we stand for – a mirror to see ourselves and to welcome visitors to reflect with us on our past, present, and future. They should serve as dynamic public stages and galleries to showcase Indy’s artistic talent and engage creatives in shaping these experiences and sharing our diverse stories with each other and the world. They should be a constant source of energy, inspiration, pride, engagement – and home – for all who live in and love Indy.
