Celebrating with Public Art
The Arts Council of Indianapolis will kick off a new chapter for the city’s public art portfolio designed to amplify all four guiding principles set by the Bicentennial Commission: history, civic pride, innovation, and legacy. The two projects included in the Arts Council initiative are the “Indiana Legends” Bicentennial Mural Series and the Restoration of the Hobart Mural.
“Indiana Legends” will focus on identifying a group of Hoosiers who both embody the Bicentennial Commission’s guiding principles and have had significant impact on the development of Indianapolis.
The second project will restore the historic mural on North Delaware Street, originally painted in 1973 by Roland Hobart as the first of three murals commissioned during Mayor Richard Lugar’s administration for a project called “Urban Walls.”
