Pulaski County is home to a rich variety of plants and wildlife. In an effort to celebrate and commemorate these aspects, the public is encouraged to cast their vote for one of 5 subjects for artwork to be prominently displayed as a part of the Pulaski County Tribe Art in the Park project.
The options include a turtle, sunflowers, otter, cattails, and blue heron. A selection will be made based on votes and funding available. In addition to the public’s selection of an art component, the organization is working on a surprise piece of art for public enjoyment.
Votes can be cast online using the QR code or link below, as well as in-person on a paper form at the
Winamac, Francesville, and Monterey libraries.
“PCT is excited to continue efforts to enhance the communities throughout Pulaski County. As we
pursue opportunities to improve the quality of life in our rural communities, we often look to art to create
connections and embrace the pace of the place we call home,” stated Brandi Larkin, Founder, and
President of Pulaski County Tribe.
Additional components of the project include:
Phase 1: Aesthetic improvements to the artesian well area, which are well underway with the update of the structures paint and stain. Soon to come is the addition of complementary plant life.
Phase 2: Installation of artwork that celebrates Pulaski County to be enjoyed by residents and guests
for years to come.
Phase 3: A public celebration to be enjoyed by all ages on Saturday, May 7th, 7 -11 am. This event will
feature hands-on art activities, a public dedication of installed artwork, a celebration of improvements
made to the artesian well area, and artisans showcasing their talents.
Those interested in collaborating for the project or public event are encouraged to send an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org. More details of the upcoming components of the project will be shared
in the weeks ahead.
This project is made possible through the collaboration of various community organizations as well as the Indiana Arts Commission and Tippecanoe Arts Federation. Funding for the Indiana Arts Commission and its programs is provided by the Indiana General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
“From the smallest rural communities to the largest cities,we see arts and creativity improving quality of life and driving economic development, and this funding will support the projects and organizations around the state at the heart of this progress,” said Lewis Ricci, IAC Executive Director. “It is an honor to support work that is strengthening the fabric of Indiana communities.”
