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, but a few I have been unable to find, so if you are the artist or know that artist, please reach out to me so I can correct and update!
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, and have been noted!
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.
