300 central Indiana artists sought for March Madness pop-up events

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — If you are an artist in central Indiana, the Arts Council of Indianapolis wants your help welcoming college basketball fans to the city for March Madness. It’s also a chance for local artists to share in the national spotlight.

Leaders in this project along with the Arts Council include Indiana Sports Corp, Indianapolis Cultural Trail and many more organizations forming a welcome committee ahead of the event.
