Limestone Weekend (at Spring Mill State Park, Mitchell, Indiana)
Saturday, June 24 (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and Sunday June 25 (Noon to 4 p.m.)

Every June, Indiana celebrates Limestone month to honor the distinctive occupational tradition of limestone work found in south-central Indiana. To mark this occasion Traditional Arts Indiana and the Spring Mill State Park will host a weekend of limestone programming for the public. This year limestone carver Casey Winningham will demonstrate his skills and answer questions about his craft. Casey Winningham uses a hand chisel and mallet to create clean and precise lettering work, carving historical monuments and gravestones that allow him to restore older works and create new ones. This event is free and open to the public. This program is made possible through funds from the Indiana Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
