Kokomo Alley Art


ONE INDIANA TOWN IS DOING JUST THAT. OUR MEREDITH JULIET IS IN LIVE IN KOKOMO THIS MORNING WHERE ALLEY ART IS TAKING OVER THE DOWNTOWN SQUARE. IT’S CALLED “ALL ALLEYS LEAD TO ART”… AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I’M FINDING HERE IN KOKOMO. AD-LIB ABOUT ART THE ALLEY TRASFORMATION IS BEING DONE BY THE GREATER KOMOMO DOWNTOWN ASSOCIATION. ARTISTS MUST PREPARE WORK THAT CAN WITHSTAND THE ELEMENTS… AND PIECES ARE ROTATED IN AND OUT OF THE ALLEYS TO SHOW DIFFERENT PIECES. AND IT’S NOT JUST ONE ALLEY… SEVERAL ALLEYS ACROSS DOWNTOWN KOKOMO HAVE BEEN TRANSFORMED. ORGANZIERS SAY… IT’S A GOOD WAY TO BRING ART TO PEOPLE WHO MIGHT FIND THEMSELVES IN ART GALLERIES VERY OFTEN. “NOT EXPECTING A DARK ALLEY TO BE A 24/7 DYNAMIC ART GALLERY, UHM, I THINK THAT COULD ADJUST THEIR OPINION OF WHERE THEY ARE AND WHAT’S HAPPENING HERE.” THIS IS REALLY A COMMUNITY EFFORT TOO… A LOCAL TEEN MADE IT HIS EAGLE SCOUT PROJECT TO HELP INSTALL THE ART IN THE ALLEYS. EVERYONE SORT OF WORKING TOGETHER TO ADD A LITTLE LIFE TO THESE ALLEY WAYS. BEN AND JULIA? TERRE HAUTE IS CHOOSING FIGHT
