DigIndy Art Summer Fun

 

After a successful DigIndy Art Project in 2018, Citizens is back for another summer of fun! This year we’re partnering with Big Car Collaborative and local artists on a few events we think you’ll really dig. Join us this summer to learn more about the DigIndy Tunnel System and add your personal touch to a community manhole cover and paint-by-numbers designs that will be transferred onto Citizens manhole covers and placed throughout the city.

Thursday, July 18, 5-8pm: Broad Ripple Art Walk
Citizens is teaming up with the Indianapolis Art Center as an exhibit and activity during the Broad Ripple Art Walk! Stop by and make your mark on a community manhole cover that will be painted on site and placed near the Art Center later this summer. Visit the Indianapolis Art Center and support local filmmakers, wander the galleries featuring fresh art, and see thought-provoking films with a community of creatives. The Indianapolis Art Center is located at 820 E. 67th St.
 
Thursday, July 25, 6-9pm: Lockerbie Night Market + Beer Garden
Join us for an evening downtown, full of opportunities to enjoy the local Indianapolis arts, music and food scene and to learn more about the DigIndy Art Project. Citizens Energy Group and Big Car Collaborative artists will host a community painting project, along with a virtual reality experience of the DigIndy Tunnel System. Purchase goods from local artists and food vendors or relax and take in live music. Beer will also be available for purchase at the pop-up beer garden located right off Mass Ave. Citizens will be among the various vendors, food trucks and musical acts. This event takes place at 320 N. New Jersey St.
 
Wednesday, August 14, 11am-5pm: Indiana State Fair
Citizens is popping up at the Indiana State Fair at Big Car Collaborative’s placemaking zone public space where visitors can relax, play and experience art. Stop by and participate in the community painting project, experience the DigIndy Tunnel System through virtual reality or interact with the artists who are transforming manhole covers into works of art.
 
September: Guichelaar Gallery
The creative work of several local artists who transformed manhole covers into works of art will be on display throughout September at the Guichelaar Gallery. Learn more about what inspired their work and their creative interpretation of the DigIndy Tunnel System. The Guichelaar Gallery is located at 1135 Cruft St.

The DigIndy Tunnel System

Since 2012, Citizens Energy Group has been at work 250 feet below the city building the DigIndy Tunnel System, a 28-mile long network of 18-foot-dimeter tunnels designed to store combined sewer overflow (CSO) after rain events. Upon completion, the DigIndy Tunnel System will reduce up to 99% of CSOs in area waterways.
