Boarded Up Windows Being Transformed Into Works Of Art

The Arts Council of Indianapolis is connecting downtown business and property owners with local Black artists to create temporary murals on boarded up windows. Rebecca Robinson works in a number of mediums and materials but had never created a mural the size of the one she created on the Meridian Street side of Union Station.

From our Arts and Culture Desk, WFYI’s Jill Ditmire spoke with Robinson about the design and meaning of the mural — which Robinson says was inspired by a sculpture she created in February — of a hoodie with a black logo of the United States on the side of it.

When the panels are removed, the murals will be displayed along the Indianapolis Cultural Trail and other public locations
