I think first time I recorded this series of murals was my second visit to Indianapolis in 2015. Unfortunately my very bad habit of not getting projects started or finished – I’m just now getting around to sharing video.
You will find these murals “hiding” in an underpass between Indianapolis Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium (at South and Capitol). If you don’t take skywalk leaving Crowne Plaza at Union Station to stadium – you would make a left from hotel driveway to find this artwork.
There was a man on a bike who didn’t seem to happy I was recording murals. Couldn’t understand what he said both times he rode by – second time on other side of underpass.
