Making of You Are There 1913: A City Under Water

February 25, 2013

Ourlatest You Are There exhibitwill take visitors back in time to experience an Indianapolis relief station in the midst of the 1913 floods that ravaged the Midwest.


The flood exhibit is being installed in the space that once was You Are There 1920: Busted! Prohibition Enforced. While it is sad to see an exhibit go, especially one that was as beloved as our 1920s police station, I do love a good before and after.


This tear-down has been quite remarkable! Our fabricators, Roger and Jim, have been working very hard, tearing down walls and pulling down the brick, even moving an extremely heavy vintage jail cell!



I will be posting weekly updates of the build so you can witness the transformation yourself. Be sure to come check out this exhibit on March 26!


Sarah Anderson is the exhibit designer for IHS. Sarah is a TEDTalk loving, digital artist with a passion for design thinking.
