What's Out There Weekend Indianapolis

What's Out There Weekend Indianapolis
Oct 06, 2017 to Oct 08, 2017
Indianapolis, IN
United States

Discover the design history of places you pass every day but may never have visited with free tours of Indianapolis' parks, gardens, estates, cultural venues, and open spaces. The tours will be led by experts in history and landscape design, revealing a largely unrecognized legacy of thoughtful landscape architecture and city planning in the heart of the Midwest.

What’s Out There Weekend Indianapolis and its accompanying City Guide are made possible in large part by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Art Works and Lilly Endowment Inc., and in partnership with the Indiana Cultural Landscapes Committee of Indiana Landmarks, led by Meg Storrow, FASLA, Chair, and David Gorden, ASLA Trustee, Vice Chair.
