INDIANA---Kipp Normand has no formal training in art but last week he won Indy's ArtPrize "Pitch Night" with a proposal to create a pile of junk. He's an obsessive collector, and the odd pieces he finds often end up in works of art. This month, as Indiana cultural institutions celebrate all things Hoosier, Gallery 924 has put a creative and colorful twist on the Bicentennial with a two person show that includes assemblage artist Kipp Normand. In his work, “Palm Sunday” Normand tells the tale from Indiana history linking natural disaster and the Christian holiday of “Palm Sunday.” The exhibit has been extended through July 22, 2016.
