When: Fri., Aug. 29, 2-7 p.m. 2014
The Indianapolis Museum of Art will debut the newest addition to the Museum’s celebrated outdoor sculpture program—Roy Lichtenstein’s monumental Five Brushstrokes— at a Block Party at the IMA on Aug. 29 from 2 to 7 p.m. A sculpture dedication ceremony at 3 p.m. will feature remarks from museum leaders, Lichtenstein Foundation representatives and community dignitaries.
Five Brushstrokes consists of five separate elements, the largest reaching 40 feet high, and has never been assembled. The sculpture, which took several days to install, is a prominent new addition to the campus, displayed in front of the main museum building in the Dudley and Mary Louise Sutphin Mall.
The day of celebration will feature music by local DJs, food trucks and special programming for all ages. Visitors can play lawn games with an artistic twist, join a session of the IMA Drawing Club and add their own brushstroke to the Museum's giant community painting. Visitors will also enjoy an exclusive sneak peek at upcoming programming, ticket giveaways and other surprises. The evening will conclude with a viewing of The Godfather, the final film in this season’s The National Bank of Indianapolis Summer Nights Film Series.
