See, hear Miller Prize winner

Ben Aranda, a 2017 Exhibit Columbus Miller Prize winner for the “Another Circle” installation, will talk about his design at 4:30 p.m. today at Mill Race Park.

Aranda will discuss creating the most expansive installation for Exhibit Columbus and his inspiration for the design.

“Another Circle” is a response to strong architectural elements already present in Mill Race Park, according to Exhibit Columbus organizers. The installation uses 1,100 pieces of salvaged Indiana limestone to connect Round Lake, the People Trail and the East Fork White River with a new, 3.5-acre stone circle.

In addition to Aranda’s talk, T. Kelly Wilson, director of the IU Center for Art + Design, and Jee Yea Kim, designer-in-residence for Exhibit Columbus’ high school installation, will talk about that installation at 5 p.m. Tuesday at the center, 310 Jackson St.

Jee also will share her experiences working with high school students on “Between the Threads,” one of Exhibit Columbus’ most popular places for photos. Visitors also will see “Shadow of an Unknown Bird,” one of the largest 3-D printed works of art in the world, a collaborative project of Cummins, IUCA+D and Indiana University. It’s a special Drinking About Design program.
