Dedication of the Glick Peace Walk


5 stars

A large crowd gathered

at Walnut and Meridian at the entrance of a beautifully paved and landscaped

promenade and then walked westward toward Capitol to witness through words,

music, landscape architecture, illumination and sculpture the stories of

fourteen "people of peace whose creativity, perseverance and concern for others

improved life for everyone who came after them." Gene Glick's words seem

coupled with a lifetime of deeds, even if this, a combined dream of Marilyn and

Gene, took some 20 years to reach fruition on their terms—everything as

close as possible to perfection in delivery and maintenance. Aesthetically,

this walkway resonates serene beauty in its deference to peace as the link

between the American Legion Mall and the Canal. Rob Johansen and Priscilla

Lindsay inspiringly delivered Lindsay's sprightly script to provide each of the

luminaries with dimensional life. Produced by Gail Payne and directed by Ben

Tebbe, nothing was left to chance for excellent sound and on-the-mark

interpolations of music by the Ronen Chamber Ensemble. At the end of the ten

luminary gardens at Capitol, the Indianapolis Children's Choir led in the

lighting of candles and the singing of "Let There Be Peace On Earth." More at www.IndyCulturalTrail or call 317-713-3333.
