Figured Base

  • B-Line Trail between Kirkwood Avenue and 6th Street
  • Bloomington, IN 47404
Figured Base was created from Indiana limestone in 2009 by artist Mike Van Vooren. The sculpture of a music stand, located on the B-Line Trail, was inspired by the idea of art as a collaborative effort between many different people in its creation and enjoyment. The artist wanted to communicate that Bloomington is a community where artists of all genres lend support to one another to enrich the lives of many. The artist wishes to dedicate this piece in memory of his father and mother, Albert and Mary Louise Van Vooren.
