Mass Transit is a nine-part, temporary installation by Chakaia Booker in downtown Indianapolis. The project was sponsored by Public Art Indianapolis, a recently launched initiative of the Arts Council of Indianapolis [hear that, Cincinnati?].
The installation, constructed largely of tires, references both Indy’s rich African American heritage and car racing history, in addition to pointing toward the Indianapolis GreenPrint initiative.
Mass Transit is up through Apr 09. Pictured here is Tailgating, one of the nine temporary sculptures.
