Bloomington’s Banquet on the B-Line Trail

It’s been a big month for downtown Bloomington with the opening of the B-Line Trail.  Now a new, big piece of artwork is being installed.

This is more than a year’s work for local artist Dale Enochs.  It’s called the Bloomington Banquet.

“I hope they smile and laugh, I hope children are drawn to it,” says Enochs.  “I hope it causes some questions and dialogue with people.  I hope that people take it as intended, to be in good humor.”

The sculpture features a table and chairs made of Indiana limestone with place settings of steel and aluminum.  In all it will be 23 feet at it’s highest point.

“A dining table is a place where people come together and sit down and not only eat, but socialize and get to know one another and normally do that in a peaceful way.  Really I think that speaks a lot to what Bloomington is about, it’s a place where people come together from all over the world and relate to one another and work together in a peaceful manner.”
