Hoagy Carmichael Landmark Sculpture

Created by Michael McAuley, the Hoagy Carmichael Landmark Sculpture toured the state of Indiana before coming to rest here in Bloomington. This bronze sculpture of Bloomington native and legendary jazz composer and songwriter Hoagy Carmichael was installed in its permanent home near the northeast corner of the IU Auditorium in 2008. The sculpture was created by fellow Bloomington native and IU graduate Michael McAuley, whose interest in the project was sparked by the connection he felt to Carmichael because they were both from Bloomington and both attended Indiana University in a creative field.
