Turn to the Rive, a multi-year project of Art Spaces, Inc., to reconnect downtown Terre Haute with the Wabash River through public art and design. Turn to the River is a strong model of collaboration and placemaking that engages the community, links to economic development and other river-related improvement projects, inspires new ideas and offers a comprehensive vision for the historical downtown area.
The entire focus area is the four-square block central City/County government campus and a city-owned property adjacent to the Wabash River. The project consists of five phases and a variable phase. In each phase, Art Spaces engages government officials, other stakeholders and people working, living, or going to school in the area, to design and revitalize important community spaces. Engagement activities increase understanding of the link between the physical environment, mental health, and good stewardship of the Wabash River.
