New Arts Corridor banners now hanging downtown

TERRE HAUTE — Arts Spaces Inc. recently worked with ISU’s Energize Downtown on a contest for a new banner design for the Arts Corridor. Terre Haute designer Levi McGranahan’s winning entry has recently been printed and 26 banners have been installed along Seventh Street between Poplar and Cherry streets.

The first banner design competition was in 2006 and artist Sala Wong’s winning design served as the designation for the Arts Corridor until late last year. The City of Terre Haute established the Arts Corridor in 2006.

The purpose of the banners is to identify the Arts Corridor as a special district, draw attention to the arts of our city, and add an attractive artistic element to the downtown area. The decision on the winning entry was made by a panel which included representation from: Indiana State University Department of Art, Downtown Terre Haute Inc., City of Terre Haute, Art Spaces, Arts Illiana, Swope Art Museum and Halcyon Gallery.

The mission of Art Spaces is to establish a public sculpture collection for Terre Haute and the surrounding region of the Wabash Valley. This lively non-profit recently moved downtown to Ohio Street and also acts on a consulting basis for other arts projects in the area.

Art Spaces has installed four sculptures downtown along the Arts Corridor including Gatekeeper at the Vigo County Public Library; Free Fly, adjacent to the Indiana Theater; Spirit of Space in front of the Swope Art Museum; Max Ehrmann at the Crossroads at Seventh and Wabash.
