Lisbon, Paris, Pittsburgh, Miami, Pensacola, Dollywood, and soon - 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 from mid-
June to 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
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. 

Stay tuned for more updates on the opening of the installation!
