About This Event


Friday, March 2, 2012

Opening reception 5:00pm

Herron School of Art & Design, 735 W. New York St., Indianapolis, IN


Sometimes a couch is just a piece of furniture . . . and sometimes--through the eyes of a visionary--a couch becomes a source of alternative building materials, a commentary on our prodigious solid waste stream and a view into the lives of the most economically disadvantaged citizens of our city.

Interest in the sustainability issues examined by Couched Constructions has triggered a full slate of companion activities:

  • 9:00am - 12:00pm   Found Objects Workshop

  • 12:00 - 1:00pm   Lunch with participants

  • 1:00pm - 4:00pm  Conversation with Couched Construction exhibitors and Discarded Indianapolis photo study artists, Kurt Gohde and Kremena Todorova, Transylvania University; REading by Brian Willingham, author of Soul of a Black Cop.

All events are free and open to the public, but reservations are kindly requested. For more information or to RSVP, please contact Herron Gallery director Paula Katz at or at (317) 278-9419.
