It’s lunchtime, and you probably need a break… So take it on Monument Circle and enjoy Petri’s ambient music with electronic/noise leanings!
You don’t want to miss out on this weekly performance by Stuart Hyatt Studio as part of “Phono Fridays.” This artist designed cassette motorbike will be making its way around the circle every Friday. Cassettes will be available for purchase. Ahhh… let the nostalgia set in!
In 1916, film was a brand new art form and the Circle Theater (now home of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra) was brand new, too! Around this time, Frenchman Georges Méliès was experimenting with cinema by using it for fantastical (not just documentary) purposes. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and take your place on the Monument steps for a three-hour marathon of two-to-four minute films crafted by Méliès between 1896 and 1913. Get ready for wizards, devils, and magicians, starring in film titles like “The Triple Conjurer and the Living Dead,” “The Four Troublesome Heads,” and Méliès’ most famous, “A Trip to the Moon.” Presented by Big Car and the Indy Film Fest.
Stop by the Monument and get into a casual conversation with Architect Alexander Ralston (1771 – 1827), who platted the streets of Indianapolis and Governor Oliver Morton (1823-1877), who ran the state of Indiana during the Civil War.
Architect Alexander Ralston (1771-1827), who platted the streets of Indianapolis and Entrepreneur John Freeman (1807-1902), an African American businessman who owned a restaurant near the Circle, will be roaming on Monument Circle and ready to chat with you about their life and experiences in Indy.
