100 Years of Indy Parks Exhibit   Leave a comment

100 Years of Indy Parks postcard

The Garfield Park Arts Center is very proud to present the creative works of 10 individually invited Indianapolis-based artists as they interpret the theme, “What Indy Parks Means to my Community: the first 100 years and beyond.”  Interspersed with these contemporary works are photographs and narratives about some of our 207 parks compiled and created by Indy Parks’ employees and volunteers.  Visit us Saturdays and Sundays in the Arts for All room as we create 100 Years of Indy Parks commemorative clay tiles.   When you are done leave them with us and let the GPAC staff glaze and fire them for you for pick up at a later date.

Share the Road   Leave a comment

Did you know?

According to Indiana Vehicle Code Section 9-21-11-2:

“a person riding a bicycle upon a roadway has all the rights and duties … that are applicable to a person who drives a vehicle.”

With the addition of many bike lanes to Indianapolis, there are new rules and tips to be aware of whether you drive a car or ride a bicycle. Here at the GPAC, we have made a visual guide for sharing the road.

Come check out our guide here in our lobby or read the rest of the post for more information regarding Indianapolis Bikeways.
