Cret Building at 100: An Exhibit @ Central Library
Oct 17 – Dec 31 all-day

Library visitors are invited to view a special exhibit the celebrates the architecture, people and stories of Central Library’s Cret Building entitled, “Cret Building at 100,” continuing through December 31 at Central Library, 40 E. St. Clair Street.

Located on land donated by beloved Hoosier poet James Whitcomb Riley, the Library’s original
limestone building was designed by French architect Paul Cret and dedicated on October 7, 1917. Its architectural features are highlighted by its classic Greek Doric exterior and an interior ceiling mural painted in oil on small canvases. It was proclaimed by Architectural Forum in 1918 as “the most beautiful secular building in the United States, if not the most beautiful secular building produced in modern times.”

The exhibit describes how Central Library played an integral part in defining the city’s character over the past 100 years and how it remains vibrant and culturally significant today. Eighteen full-color, illustrative and interpretive panels designed by RLR of Indianapolis showcase over 50 images and artifacts that are housed in Central Library’s Nina Mason Pulliam Indianapolis Special Collections Room.

“Cret Building at 100” is made possible by a generous grant from Katz, Sapper & Miller and will be on display around the balcony of the historic Simon Reading Room during regular Central Library hours.
