Marsh Davis, President of Indiana Landmarks Checks In, Again

Today, April 9, 2012 Marsh Davis, President of Indiana Landmarks made this statement about Carmel’s historic grain elevator:

“Carmel, as a promoter of arts, is missing an opportunity to use the elevator as a very large art exhibit. It could be interpreted for what it is and how grain elevators affected the course of modern architecture. Not just architecture, but commerce, transportation, agriculture, building materials. It represents major progress and historic changes in all of these forces, and they are embedded in this structure.  Interpreting it as such would be innovative and authentic.  Assessing the feasibility of that is what Indiana Landmarks was interested in probing and why we offered to study it.”
