"Commissioned by the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Los Angeles-based artist Ingrid Calame and a 12-person team spent a week tracing the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Over the course of a year, Calame developed a series of large-scale paintings incorporating the same oil-based enamel used to paint window signs and pinstripe cars at the track. The exhibition, The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Project, includes 11 color pencil drawings on Mylar trace, six enamel paintings on aluminum and a latex and enamel wall painting depicting a victory donut that Dan Wheldon laid down after winning the 500 in 2005. Calame will give a free talk in the IMA’s Deer Zink Pavilion Nov. 1, 7 p.m. and the exhibit will be open until 9 p.m. There will also be a party with music by the Twin Cats. Admission to the party is $10, $5 for students with ID. RSVP for the party by calling 317-920-2651. "
