Event Celebrates Indianapolis 500 Art, Artifacts and Photographs

photo1We are celebrating the 100th Running of the 500 with an exhibit that showcases the Past, Present, and Future of the Sport of Racing through Art. The work of eight budding photographers from IPS #114 will be displayed on Friday, May 27, along with 16 Indy artists producing contemporary work featuring the sport of racing. Also included in the exhibit are historic art and artifacts from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum, rarely seen in public. Past, Present, and Future come together in this unique arts perspective of our Indiana Heritage around Motor Sports and Racing.

photo3“Picture Perfect Opportunities for Young Photographers” was made possible through a grant from the 500 Gives Back program. The grant allowed us to sponsor photo workshops for 10 students from IPS #114. Selected IPS students traveled to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in limousines, with cameras, equipment and instructors who taught them how to photograph speeding racecars! Photos produced by the IPS students will be on display at the closing reception on Friday, May 27, 5-9 pm, in the Raymond James Stutz Art Gallery.
