Joe on the Go: Penrod Arts Fair

Joe On The Go

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Joe Melillo got a chance to meet a unique artist doing a unique project for the Penrod Society’s 53rd annual Somerset CPAs and Advisors Arts Fair.

Turner Woodard took his expressionistic style to a full-size NASCAR. It’s a partnership between the Penrod Society and Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The car will be on display at the 53rd annual Somerset CPAs and Advisors Arts Fair, September 6- 7, as well as at the Brickyard 400.

The Arts Fair is the Penrod Society’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Over its 53 years, the Society has donated more than $4 million to local community art efforts.

The goal is to support the cultural and educational activities of Indianapolis-area artists, students, and organizations. The Fair is part of the “Nicest Day of the year” in Indianapolis.

“I think art is for humanity. It pushes us to see things differently it pushes us to think different, it pushes value differently,” says Tim Haley from The Penrod Society. “You’re never full of art, there’s space for it everywhere.”
