INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Monument Circle is getting a state of the art update thanks to a grant from the Lilly Endowment Inc.

The $8 million will go towards enhanced lighting and projection capabilities, a state-of-the-art sound system and flexible staging at the Soldiers & Sailors Monument.

The idea is to create a more dynamic gathering place and public amphitheater.

Programming will include seasonally themed experiences, light shows and a signature salute to honor Indiana history.
