Seen Those Tire Sculptures Yet?

Chakaia Booker's art is in place all around the city (and will remain on display through April 2009).

Want to know more about how she made those hulking tire sculptures?

Head to the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, 340 North Senate Avenue, Indianapolis, for an exhibit about the making of these, ummm, completely appropriate works for a city known around the world for auto racing. (That's "Black Hole", at left.)

Admission to iMOCA is free; it's open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

The collection of Indianapolis sculptures is Booker’s largest urban exhibition, and the first comprised of artworks created specifically for the community. You can read more here.
