It is with great pleasure that we announce the return of two beautiful installations to brighten the Batesville Sky this spring and summer.
April-June: Batesville Sky Color Rain. This artistic installation, inspired by the rainbow that appears after a storm, is composed of colorful ribbons. It moves with the wind and transforms the skies, interacting with the natural elements in free from. This installation is new for 2022, and just like with last year’s installment of Umbrella Sky, we expect visitors from all over the region to make their way to Batesville to view and take their picture under Color Rain. We hope to have the installation up as early as possible in April. Please follow BAAC’s Batesville Sky Facebook page at for updates on installation.
July-October: Batesville Sky Umbrella Sky Project. The same famous Umbrella Sky Project will return in a different palette of colors and patterns. Not only is the installation lovely to see in our downtown district, but it also offers much appreciated shade for our Farmers’ Market and provides an attractive venue for downtown events. 
Each of our Batesville Sky installations will again be promoted across our region as well as in the Cincinnati and Indianapolis markets making the Batesville Sky installations a unique tourist destination in SE Indiana. These installations will continue to inspire beauty in our downtown and create a unique artistic display for residents and visitors to enjoy. 
If you would like to reserve space under these installations for any free event open to the public, please fill out the form below. We appreciate your continued support in enhancing our beautiful downtown.


The art installation address is 121 Shopping Village Batesville, IN. 47006.
