Friday, March 7, from 6 pm – 9 pm, during IDADA’S First Friday Art Tour, see In Good Light: Images of the Circle City, images by award-winning iPhone photographer Rad Drew.
Artist Statement by Rad Drew:
This exhibit is a celebration of my beautiful homeland, Indianapolis, my “back yard.” It is not Paris, or Katmandu and it is not (yet!) on lists of top destinations for world travels, yet the spirit of our place is as beautiful as any in the world. With these images I’ve tried to make that point by making images to be shared with everyone that reflect the beauty of Indianapolis and which celebrate the Spirit of this place.
I believe that every place has its own unique Spirit. Whether in an exotic location in a far corner of the world or in one’s own backyard, there are sites that hold beauty and wonder just waiting for the sensitive photographer to explore. — Rad Drew
