ARTBäks

Thanks to the vision of Riley Area Development Corporation and Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf, the Art Bäks, a bright red, 8’ x 20’ shipping container is now located in Davlan Park, just south of Starbucks on Mass Ave in Downtown Indianapolis. The new pop-up art gallery, completed by art fabrication company, BAMCO, is a free public art space that will house rotating artists from April to December. Its mission is to transform the underutilized green space into an urban public art hub that increases culture and quality of life for residents and guests.

“We are excited to see a new art venue/gallery along Mass Ave. I really think it will bring an additional cultural presence to an already booming area.” said Eric Strickland, Executive Director of Riley Area Development Corporation who led the project that originated as a contest for the best pop-up design. “We wanted this space to be unique and designed by local talent.” The winning submission, designed by Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf, is a testament to Mass Ave and the unique nature of the district.

“Our design for this public “place”, which was approached with a place making-based methodology, will transform this key underutilized open space into a dynamic, flexible urban plaza that articulates the unique ethos of Mass Ave., serves as a home for public art and helps to increase overall quality of life for residents and visitors alike.”
