Random Rippling - Cultural logo artwork moved over safety concerns
posted: Nov. 02, 2007
The Broad Ripple Village logoed artwork piece was recently moved due to safety concerns. The piece was originally installed on the west wall of one of Broad Ripple's most historic buildings at the corner of Guilford and Westfield Boulevard that houses Chelsea's and the Red Room. The art, paid for and installed by the Indianapolis Cultural Development Commission, was moved to the north side of the building. According to Sharon Butsch Freeland, executive director of the Broad Ripple Village Association, safety concerns included falling ice onto pedestrians and the proximity of the piece to the power lines. Placing the art on the north wall will eventually make it visible to visitors on the canal promenade that was started on the north bank.
