Lisbon, Paris, Pittsburgh, Miami, Pensacola, Dollywood, and NOW Batesville, IN. This art
installation is made from hundreds of umbrellas that appear to be floating magically in mid-air,
bringing a shower of color creating a beautiful scene. Umbrella Sky Batesville will last now until mid-October 2021, located on the Village Green parking lot west side. 
Umbrella Sky Batesville will be promoted across our region as well as in the Cincinnati and
Indianapolis markets. The Umbrella Sky Project has aroused the interest of media all around the
world. In fact, The Washington Post recently featured this project and BAAC.

Programming from local organizations, as well as BAAC, will occur under the umbrellas. This
unique art installation will add vibrancy to our downtown district and provide a safe
outdoor space for all to gather and enjoy. 

Umbrella Sky Project comes from Portugal and was originally designed to have an art installation with every day objects to provide color and patterns on the ground with the sun and especially liked it to provide shade on warm days where people walk, shop and eat.  In our case for walking, concerts and the Farmer's Market!  Umbrella Sky Project Batesville consists of 464 umbrellas. 

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