November 26, 2012 Something old is new again as Indianapolis Power & Light Company (IPL) brings back a long-standing holiday tradition and creates a new one. Borrowing from the popular animated displays that once graced the storefront windows of L.S. Ayres in Downtown Indianapolis, IPL has dressed its windows on Monument Circle with some of those very Ayres objects, in addition to some newly created scenes right out of Norman Rockwell. Rockwell’s holiday paintings come to “life” in three-dimensional interpretations in scenes that include an orbiting toy airplane, a click-clacking toy train, a flickering stove and the holiday classic film, “Miracle on 34th Street,” looping on an old TV set. Visitors can see Santa reading children’s wish lists in “Santa at his Desk” (1935), a moving rocking horse in “Gramps at the Reins” (1933) and a child with his trumpet in “Boy Practicing Trumpet” (1950). Two cars from the iconic Santa Claus Express that hauled generations of kids around the tracks inside the Ayres building are on loan from the Indiana State Museum for the display, in addition to a pair of elves and a table setting from Ayres’ famous Tea Room. The window displays will be up through Jan. 6. For more information, please contact IPL representative Zach Dunkin at 317.261.8852 or email@example.com.
