Speedway Arts Council Calls Indy 500 Pop Up Art Shop Most Successful Ever
SPEEDWAY, Ind. – The energy returned to Speedway, and with it the fans. The hustle and bustle along Main Street has turned into booming profits for local artists and neighboring businesses.
“We had a lot of businesses on Main Street that were struggling to survive,” said Speedway City Council Chairman Vincent Noblet, “We push the public, get down and support our businesses at Speedway. These guys are putting it on the line for us.
The Speedway Arts Council is behind a pop-up store on Main Street. They say it was their most successful event ever. Foot traffic gives local artists a chance to sell their Indy 500 designs. With Indy 500 qualifiers this weekend, the council hopes to further increase sales and support these local businesses.
“I think it would be great if all those walls and all these supports were bare at the end of the show,” adds Bruce Levy, a member of the Speedway Arts Council.
