Karl Unnasch -- Public Art, Stained Glass and Sculpture

There’s a kid in all of us and this work by Karl Unnasch is just the thing to bring it out.

 

Crafted from kiddie pools, playsets and other colorful toys, PLAYTIME IN INDY is a magical ‘tree’ that musters visions of the holidays and serves as a beacon to children young and old.

 

The 50-foot work delightful as it is by daylight becomes truly luscious at night: Inspired by his work with stained glass in a sculptural context, the Artist lit the piece from within, effectuating a glow of dreamlike color.

 

In keeping with the holiday spirit, this luminous piece also offers itself up as a playful hug to kids in need: At the conclusion of the IMA’s Winter Solstice celebration, sections of the tree are ritually dismantled and the toys are donated to local charities in time for the holidays.
