"Indianapolis is really geometric, so when you see an organic shape, it jumps out," says Daniel Luchman, one of a group of Iowa City-based artists who came to Indy to share their visions of the Hoosier state with its residents. One of Luchman's creations is a collage inspired by a non-geometric part of the Circle City: the terrain surrounding the White River. This collage consists of a flat brown backdrop, blob-like in shape, mounted with paper cutouts. Luchman also helped to construct a model of Mt. Baldy (a prominent dune at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore) out of sandpaper. This rendering isn't accurate in terms of proportion and scale, but at least it's clever and cute. The most engaging part of this exhibit is a station where visitors are encouraged to participate by drawing diagrams showing how the universe works. In May, members of Big Car Collective will go to Iowa to represent this state artistically with their outsiders' eyes. Through March; 317-450-6630, www.bigcar.org.
