Batesville Sky to Illuminate Downtown Batesville

Batesville Area Art Council announces that a new visual display will be coming to downtown
Batesville just in time for the holidays. Batesville Sky – Winter Wonder will consist of a 200-foot
lighted tunnel decorated with over one hundred lit snowflakes. The light display, located on the
former Umbrella Sky structure in the Village Green parking area, will begin on Wednesday,
December 1 st and will continue to delight Batesville residents and visitors until the end of

BAAC Executive Director Sarah Heppner remarked, “due to the great enthusiasm for the
Umbrella Sky Art Installation, we wanted to find a way to repurpose the structure and brighten
spirits for the winter months. We have enlisted the help of Winterland, Inc. out of Marion,
Indiana, who has been designing and installing custom commercial holiday décor in venues in
Indiana and beyond for over 30 years. We invite community members to come downtown on
December 1 st at 5:30 pm to watch as we flip the switch to brighten Batesville.” Immediately
following the Illumination, attendees are also invited to stop by Batesville Liquor Co., where
wine tastings will be offered from 5:45-7:00 pm. Community members are encouraged to make
an evening of the event by having dinner at one of our downtown eateries.

BAAC President Kendra Basler added that, once the winter installation is complete, a new
installation will be coming for spring. Basler encourages those interested in staying updated on
the new displays to follow the BAAC website and/or Facebook page for updates.



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