Batesville gives $10,000 for art installation

Batesville Common Council showed its support of the Batesville Area Arts Council’s upcoming Umbrella Sky Project with a unanimous decision to provide $10,000 from the city’s Belterra funds. BAAC President Ethel Rodriguez presented information about the success the installation has had in larger cities in drawing more foot traffic to the area. In Batesville, the arts council plans to set up the installation in downtown over a section of the west side of the Batesville Village green parking lot. The “Umbrella Sky” will be held up by a metal structure from June to October this year.
