Turn to the River community open house April 29 at Art Spaces

Art Spaces Inc. is sponsoring a Turn to the River community open house from noon to 6:30 p.m. on April 29 in the Art Spaces office at 669 Ohio St.

The ongoing community conversation concerns connecting Terre Haute’s downtown with the Wabash River through public art and design.

There is no charge for the event and no reservation is required. People can stop in at any time to view pages of the plan draft in a large format and speak with members of the project team.

The draft plan also is posted in an interactive format online, allowing access for everyone to become a part of the conversation. Participants are encouraged to visit and re-visit the site at any time to contribute their comments and to answer questions that will be posted each Thursday. The website,, will be active through May.

The planning process, which began in fall 2012, will be completed this June.  

Public Art Review, an international publication reaching readers in 50 U.S. states and 20 different countries, featured Turn to the River last year in an article about nine artist-driven projects that are transforming watersheds — and communities.

Turn to the River is funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts through its Our Town initiative. Our Town programs support creative place-making projects to transform communities into lively, beautiful and sustainable places with the arts at their core.

Additional support for Turn to the River is provided by the Terre Haute Department of Redevelopment, City of Terre Haute Arts Grant, Indiana State University, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Ivy Tech Community College and Our Green Valley Alliance for Sustainability.
