In a city that known more for its sports teams than for its art scene, the Indianapolis Museum of Art is making moves to redefine itself as a center for contemporary art with the addition of a new art park. Curator Lisa Freiman says she can see the investment paying off, as more visitors have poured into the museum.

The full profile will air on the PBS NewsHour soon. In this preview, Freiman talks to Jeffrey Brown about the challenges of installing the park’s large artworks, and how the park is changing the arts scene in Indianapolis.
