Visit Indiana’s The 20 IN 20: Public Art

INDIANAPOLIS - (Oct. 7, 2020) – You can find eye-catching art across Indiana. Murals of well-known Hoosiers, tributes to the past or sculptures by famous or local artists. Visit Indiana's next #The20IN20 list features the must-see public art around the state.

"Beautiful murals that span whole alley walls and new innovative sculptures are truly making this state a premier art destination," said Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch.

Condé Nast Traveler called Columbus one of the world's best cities for architecture lovers. The city claims a collection that features some of the biggest names in modern art and architecture. The visitor's guide lists over 90 buildings and pieces of public art by internationally-noted architects and artists.

Eleven new murals, spread across 11 different counties, were recently unveiled over 11 days as part of the "Make it Your Own Mural Fest." The Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership, in collaboration with Arts United of Greater Fort Wayne Inc., launched this concept as a first of its kind in the State of Indiana to build on the quality of place efforts accelerated by the Regional Cities Initiative.
