The Indianapolis Bicentennial Legends mural series honors Hoosiers whose talent, courage, and humanity helped make our city the vibrant place it is today–particularly those who were overlooked in the past because of their race, gender, economic status, or social class.
Meet the first three Bicentennial Legends and follow @artscouncilindy on social media for updates on the new Etheridge Knight mural and for an announcement on the final mural in the Legends series.
Bicentennial Legends Series
The Indianapolis Bicentennial Legends series builds on Indy’s already-iconic murals of Hoosiers such as author Kurt Vonnegut, poet Mari Evans, and former Indiana Pacer Reggie Miller.
Each Bicentennial Legends mural is a unique collaboration among the artist, community partners, the building owner, and the neighborhood hosting the mural. The public was invited to nominate people for portraits and artists applied to create a mural through open calls.
