INDIANAPOLIS, IN, – The Indianapolis Museum of Art has announced the schedule of events for the grand opening of 100 Acres: The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park. Held on June 19 and 20, 2010, the weekend-long celebration includes tours, live music, art-making workshops and a Summer Solstice program.

The Park will open with eight newly commissioned inaugural works by international artists.

Highlights of the weekend include an artist panel and creative musical entertainment selected by the Kinetic Project.
