Evolution of Reading (part of The Public Collection)

Cedar, Screws, Polycarbonate, Steel - 12’ x 7.5’ x 7.5’

White River State Park, Indianapolis, Indiana

The Public Collection is a public art and literacy project consisting of artist-designed book share stations, developed to increase access to books and art. The project aims to improve literacy, foster a deeper appreciation of the arts, and promote social and educational justice in our community.

Through a curated process, Indiana-based artists were commissioned to design unique book share stations, or lending libraries, that are installed in community spaces around Indianapolis. The book share stations are free and available to everyone. Borrow and return books at your leisure.
