City officials to have private viewing of IUCA+D exhibit

The Columbus City Council and the city Redevelopment Commission will have a special meeting next week at the IU Center for Art and┬áDesign, for a private showing of the center’s exhibit on downtown Columbus development.

The exhibit pulls from artifacts and documents held by the Columbus Indiana Architectural Archives and looks back at the various plans and proposals for downtown, stretching from the days of Death Valley to the modern day efforts that led to the new Cummins office buildings downtown.

The council and commission will have their showing at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The exhibit runs through next Friday and is open to the public. The Jackson Street gallery’s hours are weekdays from 1 to 5 pm.
