Herron Campers Show Art on the Trail

Art by kids about community! Campers from Herron School of Art and Design’s summer Youth Art Camp will exhibit their art on the Indianapolis Cultural Trail: A Legacy of Gene & Marilyn Glick, on Saturday, August 4, 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. This fun and creative one-day display will be by the IUPUI portion of the Trail following Blackford Street between Vermont and New York Streets.


On view will be collaborative artworks made by campers, such as ceramic totem poles created with visiting artist Barbara Zech or colorfully drawn magnets, signs and flags with sayings such as: “Love this Trail”, “Art: Get Inspired” or “Clear Your Mind and Look”.

Trail Director Kären Haley spoke to camp participants throughout the summer to help inspire and educate them about the role of the Trail in connecting people and places. Over 200 participants entering grades 2 to 10 attended Herron’s Youth Art Camp 2012 day camp during one-week or two-week sessions.


The public and camp participants and their families and friends are invited to spend the Saturday experiencing camp artwork while using the Trail for walking or riding and exploring nearby cultural sites, such as White River State Park.
