100 Acres: The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park is located adjacent to the Indianapolis Museum on grounds that include wetlands, woodlands, meadows and a 35-acre lake.
100 Acres presents art projects, exhibitions and discussions designed to strengthen the public's understanding of the unique, reciprocal relationships between contemporary art and the natural world.
The Indianapolis Museum of Art is currently home to eight site-specific commissions. Artists Atelier Van Lieshout, Kendall Buster, Alfredo Jaar, Jeppe Hein, Los Carpinteros, Tea Mäkipää, Type A, and Andrea Zittel created temporary, site-specific works that explore and respond to the varied environments of the Park. These eight artists are the first in a series of ongoing commissions. Architect Marlon Blackwell and landscape architect Edward L. Blake work with the commissioned artists to transform the 100 acres into an art and nature park.
Open daily from dawn to dusk, Free of charge.
