“RE-DOME” Art Contest

Think you can find a way to RE-USE the roof material from the old Dome.  Well, we’ve got plenty of it and are holding a contest to see who can RE-DOME it the best.

Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc. is calling on all schools, artists, neighborhoods and non-profit organizations to RE-USE the Dome roof material in an effort to build community and display art around our city. We want the roof, under which the Indianapolis Colts once played and many other special events took place, to become a medium for local artists, a canvas for school classrooms, matter used to create artistic products, and countless other ideas that are just waiting to unfold with your involvement.
