Outdoor Sculpture - Temporary
1221 W. New York St., Indianapolis, IN, 46202
In 2018, the daVinci Pursuit partnered with artist Pat Mack to create a series of sculptures along the Urban Wilderness Trail near IUPUI in Indianapolis. The area in which the sculptures are located is focused on pollinators and their essential role in the urban environment. The three sculptures–Cliff Swallow, Monarch Butterfly, and Milkweed Plant–show the interconnectedness and coevolution of species. Each has a role to play in the creation of a balanced and healthy ecosystem.
The artist was given a list of flora and fauna important to the ecosystem, and was able to help identify the three species to create as sculptures. The artworks were created not to be in scale with each other, but to highlight features of the various species. Additional sculptures will be added as the Urban Wilderness Trail develops.
Pat Mack is an Indianapolis-based sculptor. He has been a full-time artist since 1995, and works primarily in metal.
The artwork and associated educational signage were produced in association with Partners for the White River, an initiative funded by the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust.
