100 Acres of art

100 Acres

The Indianapolis Museum of Art is in progress developing the largest museum park in the US: 100 acres: The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art and Nature Park.  Formerly a construction site and gravel pit, the 100-acre parkland has evolved naturally into woodland and wetland areas and includes a 35-acre lake.  While there are a number of other museum parks in the country, 100 Acres will be the only such venue that commissions ongoing, temporary site-specific art installations.  There are eight projects slated to open in the park by June 2010, including work by Kendall Buster, Rotterdam collective Atelier Van Lieshout, Andrea Zittel and others.  The installation work is intended to facilitate an integrated experience of art and nature.
