Cultural Trail's Northeast Corridor

The completion of the Northeast Corridor of Indy's Cultural Trail will be celebrated with a ribbon-cutting at 5 p.m. 5 November at the intersection of Massachusetts and Park avenues, Indianapolis. The Northeast Corridor connects North and Alabama streets to 10th St. and the Monon Trail.

The following speakers are scheduled to make brief remarks:

* Congressman André Carson (D.-Ind.)
* Mayor Gregory Ballard, City of Indianapolis
* Brian Payne, President, Central Indiana Community Foundation, founder/co-lead partner with the City of Indianapolis
* Mindy Taylor Ross, Public Art Coordinator for the Cultural Trail, Art Strategies
* Lori Efroymson-Aguilera and the Efroymson family will be honored for their $2 million contribution to the Cultural Trail with the official dedication of the Efroymson Family Corridor. This corridor connects North and Alabama streets to the newly named Efroymson Alley and ends at College and Massachusetts avenues.

From 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., visit the three new public art installations along this section of the Cultural Trail and meet the artists:

* "Prairie Modules 1 & 2" by M12. M12 member and local artist Stuart Hyatt will be on hand at the sculpture, located at North and Alabama streets.
* "Chatham Passage" by Sean Derry. Sean is unable to attend. Meet Mindy Ross in the alley off Mass Ave to learn more.
* "Care, Don't Care" (pictured) by Jamie Pawlus. Jamie will be at her sculpture located just outside the Art Bank on Mass Ave northeast of College Ave.

Besides, this is a First Friday art gallery opening in the Mass Ave Cultural District. What's not to like?
