Avonopolis, the cardboard city program which started in late March at the Avon-Washington Township Public Library, will continue through May 22nd, and will be available for viewing at ArtScape on April 22nd. Patrons can come see the creativity of Avon’s youth in the over 30 cardboard buildings that have been made so far, as well as make their own during the event. Participants of all ages have used materials provided by the library (with funding from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway) to upcycle cardboard boxes into homes, businesses, and skyscrapers. The program has encouraged young patrons to consider the services, infrastructure, and needs of their community in creating for the city. Local entities from the Town of Avon and Washington Township have also contributed buildings towards the program. The Avonopolis Construction Zone will be open in the Children’s Department during ArtScapeso attendees can join in the fun and add to the city. This passive program is free and open to all ages.
