"Windows to the Past" is a sculpture installed along the Indy Cultural Trail, part of the Herron School of Art and Design's rotating installation. The sculpture is designed based on actual windows from the Indiana Avenue area, and is meant to represent looking back at the past while planning for the future.


hile walking the Indy Cultural Trail, pedestrians will encounter animated public art, world-class sculptures and an installation using smell to create art.

They can catch jazz at Madame Walker Theater then walk or bike a short distance to the Old National Centre for a concert by Harry Connick Jr., Steely Dan or the National.

Along an eight-mile stretch of walkway through downtown Indianapolis, small galleries tout local painters and sidewalk cafés showcase up-and-coming musicians.

After six years of construction, the Indy Cultural Trail enables people to discover the best Indianapolis has to offer in art, music and performance theater. Joggers, walkers and cyclists can get from art sculptures to concert amphitheaters to gallery openings, all by following a single walkway.
