Home Again

Home Again
Open daily from dawn to dusk

Welcome home! The long-awaited exhibition Home Again features three brand-new sculptures centered around the notion of home and shelter. Brooklyn-based artist Heather Hart’s canary yellow interactive rooftop Oracle of Intimation appears as if it has fallen from the sky. Climb through the windows, make the roof your stage, and catch spontaneous and planned performances, workshops, and community discussions on and near the sculpture. Art and nature collide in the Pollinator Pavilion by New York-based artists Mark Dion and Dana Sherwood. The colorful gazebo is designed for humans and insects alike to slow down and become part of nature. Pakistan-born, Indianapolis-based artist Anila Quayyum Agha’s beautiful and contemplative white filigree house-shaped structure features Agha’s signature laser-etched floral patterning inspired by Islamic art and architecture. This is NOT a Refuge illustrates the hope, humor, challenges, and heartbreaks of dozens of refugees who are living in Indianapolis. 

Home Again is the first new exhibition in The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park since it opened in 2010. Home Again is the first installation of The Hawryluk Collection of Art in Nature, a new series of outdoor public art installations in The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park, made possible by a $3 million gift by Kent Hawryluk, a longtime Newfields patron and philanthropist.
