Electronic Go-Go Dancer

Currently Ann Dancing is not dancing and funds are needed to restore her to her favorite place on Mass Avenue!

[Jennifer Bremer, 06/18/2019]

The outdoor electronic sculpture had danced non-stop for 11 years, far longer than the artist or city anticipated. Some people want her restored, some people say the money -- around $250,000 -- would be better spent supporting local artists.

Go Go Dancer.

Electronic Go-Go Dancer

There is a kiosk at the corner of Alabama St. and Massachusetts Ave. that features an electronic representation of a dancing lady reminiscent of the 1960s go-go dancers. I was told by the owner of a nearby restaurant that she dances 24/7.

The go-go gal stands along the "Indianapolis Cultural Trail" (a fancy bike lane that winds its way through downtown). Maybe go-go is a form of Indianapolis culture.
