Athenaeum Selected for Keep Indianapolis Beautiful Greenspace Project

INDIANAPOLIS –The Athenaeum has been chosen by Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc., as the recipient of a 2017 Public Greenspace project.

The project will revitalize a section of greenspace in the Mile Square, located outside of the Athenaeum at 401 E. Michigan St.

With input and assistance from the downtown community, the greenspace, which is currently turf grass, will be transformed into an interactive space that incorporates nature and art, furthering the Athenaeum’s values of “sound mind, in a sound body.”

The Project Greenspace Program, now in its 22nd year, is a joint effort of Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc., Indianapolis Power and Light, and the city of Indianapolis.

“We are very grateful and honored that the Athenaeum was chosen by Keep Indianapolis Beautiful for this wonderful program,” said Cassie Stockamp, Athenaeum Foundation president. “We take great pride in the upkeep and appearance of our building, and the beautification of this greenspace will only add another astounding visual and interactive space to our wonderful Athenaeum.”
