Brandon Lott was nominated by Joanna Taft of the Harrison Center. We’ve chosen Brandon as our Resident of the Month because of his passion for our community.
1. Which neighborhood does Brandon live in?
2. What makes King Park Brandon’s home?
Brandon moved to King Park when he was in high school at Herron High, and his family rented a Unity Park house in Fall Creek Place. When those units sold, his family purchased a home on Bellefontaine from King Park. During the time that Brandon lived in Fall Creek Place, he interned at the Harrison Center for the Arts. He partnered with two other interns to create the Neighborhood Ballad Project–spoken word songs that honor neighborhood heroes like Julia Carson, Benjamin Harrison, and MLK/RFK.

When he moved to Bellefontaine, he wrote this song about it as home. It is amazing that we have neighbors who love and are inspired by the King Park neighborhood. We should share their stories to inspire others.
3. What are some of Brandon’s favorite attractions in King Park?
As a college student at IUPUI, Brandon did a 10-week singer/songwriter residency at the HCA and celebrated the Kennedy King Neighborhood. He celebrated some of his favorite attractions through song. These included running on the Monon trail, Herron High School’s back to school day, and attending First Fridays at the HCA.
