Review full RFQ here.

Indy Mural Fest is meant to be a portfolio builder for local artists and to create an artistic conversation in the community. The event is meant to beautify Indianapolis, add vibrancy to the local arts community, reinforce Indy Auto Man’s brand as visitors enter the building, and provide an Instagrammable opportunity for Indy residents and visitors.

Murals are encouraged to celebrate the history and culture of Indianapolis, as well as capture the core values of Indy Auto Man, which are growth, resourcefulness, initiative, and transparency. Please note that designs are not required to incorporate these elements, only encouraged. Standalone, unique mural ideas are also more than welcome to add diversity to the Indy arts landscape and develop artist portfolios.

Each mural will be roughly 12ft to 16ft in length, and roughly 8ft high. Murals will be installed on aluminum Dibond panels mounted to poles on the Indy Auto Man property.

Artists will be invited to draw their designs on the panels on Friday, September 3rd. Artists will install murals from Saturday, September 4th through Monday, September 6th (Labor Day). There will be a ticketed festival on Monday, September 6th from 11am to 5pm inclusive of live music, food, drinks, artist vendors, and activities. COVID barriers will be placed in between artists to protect them from each other as well as visitors depending on the state of the pandemic and local/state regulations in September 2021. Masks are required for artists.

Participating artists are required to hold liability insurance and provide proof of insurance before starting their work.
