Duke grant to benefit Terre Haute Arts Corridor

TERRE HAUTE — Art Spaces Inc. - Wabash Valley Outdoor Sculpture Collection has received a $5,000 grant from Duke Energy Foundation for the Terre Haute Arts Corridor. 

Art Spaces has worked with the city to place public outdoor sculptures along the Arts Corridor since 2007. This designated area runs along Seventh Street from Poplar to Tippecanoe streets. 

The grant will provide a portion of funds being raised for a sculpture on the east side of Seventh Street, just south of Ohio Street, on a sidewalk bumpout area designed by the city to hold sculpture.

Duke Energy Foundation has been a strong supporter of the Arts Corridor, contributing to other public works including Spirit of Space by Illinois artist Bob Emser, located in front of the  Swope Art Museum; and Max Ehrmann at the Crossroads, a sculpture by local artist Bill Wolfe, which transformed the historic Crossroads of America at Seventh Street and Wabash Avenue and created a destination site for visitors and a small city mini-park for residents to enjoy.

Art Spaces is built in great part on partnerships with foundations and corporations such as Duke Energy, combining efforts to improve the quality of life in the region, revitalize and beautify the downtown, and enrich, sustain and promote the city’s cultural life.

For more information on Art Spaces contact or call (812) 235-2801.
