A local college hopes its students and staff will “Turn to the River”.
Indiana State University hosted a “Charrette” on Tuesday; it’s a high energy event to inform students, faculty and staff about Art Spaces’ “Turn to the River Project”.
The project involves redesigning the government campus in Terre Haute through public art and design.
The goal is to increase civic involvement around the courthouse and city hall, and showcase the Wabash River.
Organizers hope this event will gets people on campus more engaged in the space.
“Never realized that there’s a river right here running two blocks from campus so how do we get students, faculty and staff to get down into that space,” said ISU Department Chair of Multidisciplinary Studies Tina Kruger.
The “Turn to the River” project is currently in the design and development phase.
Students, faculty and staff got to see those designs at today’s event.
