Legacy Projects > Turn to the River – A Community Reconnects Turn to the River – A Community Reconnects

The goal of “Turn to the River – A Community Reconnects” is to reconnect Terre Haute’s downtown with the Wabash River through public art and design. Art Spaces has engaged artists and designers that are working internationally in the public realm to consult with us and engage the community in public sessions. The resulting 212-page plan, and a design symposium which followed, have laid the groundwork for implementation to begin. Turn to the River is a multi-year project. The focus in 2016 will be on the civic plaza between Terre Haute City Hall and Vigo County Courthouse. It will be redesigned to include public art and to capture elements of our history, the designed walking promenade will offer pedestrians and aesthetically pleasing and meaningful way back to the river.
