Art Spaces and City of Terre Haute invite the public to a picnic and celebration of the progress of Turn to the River on Wednesday, September 6 from 11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. on the grounds of Terre Haute City Hall. (Rain date is September 7).  Admission is free and food may be purchased on site from the following: Twisted Fry, Sati Babi, Tot Stop and Cajun Ice.  This is an exciting opportunity for people to enjoy lunch where Terre Haute’s downtown began.  Live music will include Brent McPike and Solly Burton.

Turn to the River is a project of Art Spaces, supported in part by the National Endowment of the Arts Art Works reconnecting Terre Haute’s downtown with the Wabash River through public art and design.  Previous phases have been built through artist and community input.  Members of the Art Spaces Turn to the River Committee will be on hand to talk with people about the upcoming Design work to begin this fall. Enjoy a festive atmosphere while learning about the imaginative concepts for reconnecting this culturally vital area with Terre Haute’s downtown.

Location: 17 Harding Street, Terre Haute, Indiana (between the City Hall and County Courthouse).  For more information contact 812-235-2801 or
