15 Moments: #15 Monument Circle

‘Tis the season for year-end posts, so I thought I’d highlight 15 of my notable moments from the year. This is part 15 of 15. Previous parts are here: 1 2 3 4 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14

#15 Monument Circle

If there’s any moment that repeated itself over the course of 2015, it would be my continued appreciation and affection for Indianapolis’ Monument Circle. I often find myself walking around the Circle when I need some quiet time to reflect. I’ll take in the curved buildings and Indiana Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument whenever I feel like I’m in a photography funk. I enjoy people watching – you’ll see families, tourists, and professionals, all interacting on the Circle. Even on instagram, the monument has its own hashtag, #samemonumentdifferentday and it is the inspiration for our Indianapolis instameets (The #circlecityseshes).

This year, Big Car staged a placemaking event called Spark: Monument Circle. Over the course of 11 weeks, programming and temporary structures added additional activity to the space. It was great seeing my favorite public space in Indianapolis being explored in new ways.

Next time you’re on the Circle, I recommend a slow walk around the entire Monument.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my 15 Moments from 2015! It has been a great way to reflect and think about how much I’ve been fortunate to accomplish during 2015. Looking forward to Indiana’s bicentennial year – 2016!
