INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Keep Indianapolis Beautiful and the Arts Council of Indianapolis are bringing a new public art experience to the city. They call it the “Indy Art & Seek” project. Its goal is to give Residents and visitors interactive access to more than 100 mini-installations, performances, literary pieces and individual artworks to be featured along urban streets.
On September 5, the groups will launch an interactive map and mobile app to guide people participating through the experiences. Organizers say the app will reveal locations and spaces that artists and community partners collaborated on to turn into works of art that are meaningful to the neighborhoods they are being placed in.
Megan Jefferson, a local muralist, was inspired to create her Truths and Roses piece by a community garden on the city’s east side. Watch the video to see her tell the story and share the motivation behind the artwork.
The mobile app will help users find locations of the public art pieces using photos, videos and even live performances of the artists putting them together. According to Julia Muney Moore, Director of Public Art for the Arts Council, app users also have the chance to earn badges and win prizes.
