Pogues Run Art and Nature Park Design Tour
Saturday, October 20, 2018
If you have ever driven Interstate 70 on the near east side of Indianapolis, you have probably noticed the Pogues Run Art and Nature Park. This park, located at the northern end of Pogues Run Greenway, is a 43 acre park that serves as part of the City’s flood control system. The historic site is designed to help alleviate flooding on the east side of the City. But its design also provides a nearly 2-mile loop trail that provides access to a significant number of contemporary art pieces designed by students from the Herron School of Art and Design at IUPUI. The park provides a unique setting for recreation while also serving the flood control needs for Pogues Run watershed. This tour provides a unique perspective into the design and function of the Pogues Run Art and Nature Park. The tour will be led by representative of Citizen’s Energy Group (CEG), and artist Eric Nordgulen, Professor at Herron School of Art and Design who facilitated the original crafting and placement of the park’s sculptural elements.
This tour is eligible for LA/CES, AIA, and ECAC continuing education credits.
