Bicentennial Plaza Indianapolis / IN

State of Indiana Public Art Collection

"an original artwork owned by the State of Indiana"

Commissioned for the 200th year commemoration of the establishment of the State of Indiana, Lux Aeterna has a unique form that is inspired by the torch of the state’s flag. Placed in front of the capital building of the State of Indiana in Indianapolis, Lux Aeterna speaks of light and illumination as well as knowledge and courage. Artwork's gentle but prominent curves juxtapose, yet compliment the surrounding classical architecture of local limestone.


We would like to sincerely thank you for this commission and your help realizing it.
