Join us for free improvised music, poetry, video projections, and a public art tour all in one Wednesday evening!

 

Evening Embers — performance of new compositions and improvisations by Indianapolis-based musicians Jordan Munson and Rob Funkhouser through the Circle sound system. Starts at 6 pm and goes until the reading.

 

Public Art Tour — Inspired by the recent Public Art Census produced by Rokh – a cultural equity research & design studio – take a tour highlighting Downtown’s public works by artists of the global majority (Black-Diaspora, Asian, Latinx, dual-heritage, Indigenous, and Women). Tour led by artist Greg Rose (@hay_kidd). Starts at 6 pm.

 

Circle Anthology — 26 writers will share poems or prose poems inspired by the Circle. Their work will air on WQRT FM during Circle Sounds playing from the Circle speakers (listen here). Live reading at 7 p.m.

 

No More No Place — Organized by Indianapolis musician and IUPUI professor Jordan Munson, this project pairs instrumental music by local composers with video accompaniments projected on a 10-story building on the Circle. Debuts at about 8 p.m.

 

Big Car Collaborative and Downtown Indy have teamed up with the City of Indianapolis — with support from the Capital Improvement Board and the Indiana War Memorials Commission— to spark Monument Circle with human-scale activities like games, live music, artmaking, and socializing in a comfortable place. Everything is free for people to enjoy.
