Meet us at 5 p.m. at the Indianapolis Central Library for a tour of one of Indy’s most beautiful landmarks and a favorite community resource. Completed in 1917, it was designed by French-born, Philadelphia-based architect Paul Philippe Cret. The Library, a wonderful example of America’s City Beautiful Movement, won the prestigious AIA Gold Medal Award in 1921 (American Institute of Architecture – Philadelphia Chapter).
Learn all about the Library’s wonderful history, art and architecture—both old and new—with a free docent-led tour beginning at 5:15pm. All ages welcome; space is limited.
Following the tour, feel free to enjoy the Library and its collections on your own, or join us one block south on Pennsylvania Street at the Elbow Room. Since 1933, the Elbow Room has offered a casual pub-like atmosphere to relax at the end of a long day. Guests must be age 21+. This is a no host event.
