StreamLines is an interactive, place-based project that uses the arts to advance the Indianapolis community’s understanding and appreciation of the city’s waterways. The project features art created for sites along six Indianapolis waterways, inviting the community to learn, explore, and experience the science of local water systems:

  • Five visual art installations by Mary Miss/City as Living Laboratory® (MM/CaLL)
  • A series of dance performances by Butler University Department of Dance
  • Six musical compositions curated by Michael Kaufmann/The Kinetic Project
  • A collection of poems penned by Indiana poets selected by Poets House
