In the early 1990s, participants in Save Outdoor Sculpture! (SOS!) scoured Indianapolis to catalog examples of public art and report on their condition. Their efforts are documented in a set of files, a book and a database, all of which are frozen in time. What do those artworks look like today? And what about all of the new artworks that have been added to Indianapolis parks and other public spaces since?
Check out Wikipedia Saves Public Art’s Flickr pool to find out. A huge thank-you goes out to Sarah Stierch for collecting so many of these images and schlepping all over town in search of accurate information. Sarah has written about her experiences on her blog.
