The Indianapolis City Market is open and has plans to infuse public art into the space. We are thrilled to offer an opportunity for local artists to add a unique layer to this experience in Downtown Indy. We are planning to install a street art trail along concrete barricades. The designated space is very visible from the street, sidewalks, adjacent buildings, and community gathering spaces.


A panel of jurors will select 16 high-skilled artists for the installation. The selected artists will each receive a $700 stipend for their work. Artists must supply their own materials.

Public Street Art Trail Guidelines

  • The concept must be based on the theme: Reclaiming the Space
