I love wall murals. They really make cities colorful and provide perfect backdrops for photos. When traveling some place new, I usually seek out some of the more unique murals, especially if they have the city name in them somewhere.
Over the past few years, I’ve been working on a mural guide for Indianapolis and surrounding areas. As more and more pop-up, I decided it would be best if they were all in one post! I’ve tried to tag the artist, because they deserve to be recognized for their work as well.
I’m also including a map with all the locations, which I’ll update when I add new ones to this post. A few are no longer there, but since I think it’s kind of fun to look at past murals too, those are at the bottom of the post in their own section.
Fountain Square is FULL of murals and new ones keep popping up all the time. I’ve rounded them all up in this section and will continue to update as new ones are added.
