Cutting the Ribbon

February 25, 2013

On Monday, after a year of planning and months of renovation work, ONE 10 STUDIO, the Central Indiana Community Foundation (CICF), Mayor Greg Ballard, Congressman Andre Carson, City-County Councillors Maggie Lewis and Joe Simpson, Judge Marilyn Moores, former School 37 Teacher Pat Ladd and the Martindale-Brightwood community celebrated the completion of the first phase of the renovation with a Ribbon Cutting ceremony.

Of course ONE 10 STUDIO is thrilled to play a role and could write thousands of words about this important project but we thought we’d share what other’s had to say.


“Over the years, Martindale-Brightwood has faced its fair share of struggles, but this resilient community has never stopped fighting its way back. 37 Place is yet another chapter in this remarkable comeback story, providing a community center and gathering place worthy of this historic neighborhood and the incredible people who call it home.” – Congressman Andre Carson


“School 37 holds an incredibly important place and value within the Martindale-Brightwood. The process of working with committed neighbors and leaders, organizations and donors to transform it from a building with unrealized potential into a vibrant community center and gathering place is truly an ideal representation of our role in the community, and one of the reasons we decided to make this the largest commitment of its kind in the Indianapolis Foundation’s history.” – Brian Payne President and CEO of the Indianapolis Foundation and the Central Indiana Community Foundation

“Just to have a place like this is going to mean so much to this community. I know the school meant a lot to this community, but now this building, which meant so much, has now been transformed into something that will be extremely valuable as we go forward. The 37 Place project combines the best of the old and the new to create an incredible centerpiece in Martindale-Brightwood. This is yet another example of diverse partners coming together to make a neighborhood better, and thus our city better.” – Mayor Greg Ballard


ONE 10 STUDIO is proud to continue our long-standing, working relationship with CICF. We continue to enjoy engaging with their leadership and community leaders to help turn 37 Place into the heartbeat of Martindale-Brightwood community.
