Keep Ann Dancing

Ann Dancing by Julian Opie was the first piece purchased for the Indianapolis Cultural Trail Public Art Collection. Today, Ann Dancing is more than ten years old. Ann Dancing is a piece of art, but she is also a piece of technology. We need your help to repair and upgrade Ann Dancing. We have until June 29th to raise $262,800 to Keep Ann Dancing. Can you help?

Ann Needs You

Ann Dancing is located on the Cultural Trail at the intersection of Massachusetts Ave, Alabama and Vermont Streets, one of the most vibrant and busy intersections on the Trail. Ann has an impact on those who walk, ride, or drive by her everyday, and she also impacts our entire community. Ann Dancing is a shining example of how accessible and engaging public art can build community, create engaging public spaces and improve quality of life.

Ann is an electronic sculpture and the technology to keep her dancing has changed and improved significantly in the past decade. Ann’s technology has not been updated in over ten years. Imagine if you didn’t upgrade your iPhone for ten years. Not only has the technology to keep Ann Dancing improved, but the units on which she is displayed have improved significantly as well.

Why We Keep Ann Dancing
If I had to count how many individuals have been impacted by Ann, I’m not sure a monetary amount would be able to do her justice. Investing in Ann is about investing in community, in human interaction, in placemaking, and in those countless, beautiful moments we have all likely had strolling by her and taking a moment to follow her rhythm.

I love watching visitors imitate Ann for a snap or boomerang; kids point and stare in awe; locals standing around Ann engaging in laughter simply enjoying the community they live in. Ann has been a part of this city and helped build the strong community we have today. She must keep dancing. WE as a community must #KeepAnnDancing

To me, Ann has become emblematic of the city of Indianapolis -- sometimes overlooked by the bustling world around it but always constant, moving and vibrant. If Ann stopped dancing, some of my fondest Indy memories, which revolved around moments close to Ann, would become all too easy to forget.

Ann Dancing is important to Indianapolis because she’s an ambassador for our city. Leisurely but playful, steady and welcoming, she’s a reassuring presence to our newest visitors and longest citizens alike.

Ann acts as an unofficial ambassador to Indianapolis. Similar to the “ndy” signs, she is a stopping point for locals and visitors to take pictures. In addition, she is a constant welcome sign to all those on the walking the trail.
