500 Festival 50th Anniversary Legacy Art

The 500 Festival has announced that Illinois-born artist Donald Lipski (pictured) has been chosen to create the 500 Festival 50th Anniversary Legacy Art piece.

Lipski is a sculptor who has received critical acclaim for his use of ordinary objects such as books, guitars, bicycles, flasks, chairs and buoys to make extraordinary sculptures.

Since the 500 Festival Legacy Art Project is being managed collaboratively by the 500 Festival, 500 Festival Foundation, and the Arts Council of Indianapolis, and funded through donations to 500 Festival Foundation, Inc., this Indianapolis Observer wonders why an Indianapolis artist wasn't chosen to create this legacy art piece.
