Alongside the Janeway Bloomington Collective, the campaign is sponsored by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) and offered through the crowdfunding platform developed by Patronicity. The campaign is led by the Artisan Alley with the permission of CBS Studios.
City of Bloomington gives fulls support…
“We will work to help the group in whatever capacity is needed…”
I would like to express the City of Bloomington’s overall support for the Captain Janeway Bloomington Collective Project. Bloomington Arts Commissioners voiced enthusiasm and approval of the project moving forward at our August 2019 meetings.
The City is continually working with the Captain Janeway Bloomington Collective and Parks and Recreation Department for an appropriate location on the B-Line Trail to install the sculpture. We will work to help the group in whatever capacity is needed to ensure this project comes to full tuition by May 20th, 2020.
