Children at Play
Viewers passing by Children at Play will hopefully feel a moment of nostalgia, remembering the wonderful days of being a kindhearted, kind-spirited child. The artist’s intention is to uplift and encourage our communities to thrive–to resonate with the importance of people who are the heart and soul of our communities as well as with the need to protect and empower our youth to strive for greatness.
The artwork was originally installed in this location as part of Indy Art & Seek, a 2020-21 project with the Arts Council of Indianapolis and Keep Indianapolis Beautiful. The artist donated it to Touba Gardens after the project’s conclusion so it can keep inspiring the community.
