The Arts Council of Indianapolis is again partnering with Jiffy Lube of Indiana to commission up to 5 wall-based artworks on Indiana Jiffy Lube franchises in 2022.

ELIGIBILITY: Artists over 18 living in Indiana

BUDGET: $5,000 – $10,000 depending on wall size and conditions

DEADLINE:  November 21, 2021, 11:59 p.m.

Full RFQ with complete opportunity information is attached to this notice.

Summary of Opportunity

This award-winning program will expand on an arts initiative started by Jiffy Lube, which produced three murals in 2016, six murals in 2018, five murals in 2019, three murals in 2020, and six murals in 2021. The new artworks will serve to further Jiffy Lube’s mission of “growing people through work” as well as beautify the communities in which the stores reside and create a sense of place. For more information about the mural program, visit the project website.

For the 2022 round, five artists will be commissioned to incorporate their own original artwork onto walls provided by Jiffy Lube in locations around central and northern Indiana.

The expected 2022 Jiffy Lube mural locations are:

  • Store #2364: 3998 S. East St. (at Hanna), Indianapolis, IN
  • Store #2375: 4930 S. Emerson Ave. (at Thompson), Beech Grove, IN
  • Store #2386: 532 S. State Rd 135 (at Fairview), Greenwood, IN
  • Store #2551: 512 J St., La Porte, IN
  • Store #3693:  640 N. Wayne St., Angola, IN

Additional or alternative sites may be selected as the project develops.

Artwork Information

Artworks can be painted murals, or any other type of artwork that is relatively flat (projecting no more than 4-6 inches from the wall plane) and which can be attached to a wall.  Murals may be painted directly onto the wall surface or can be painted onto a panel and attached to the wall, as the nature of the site requires.  Artists may choose to incorporate community involvement in the mural, or may choose to do the work themselves.  The mural content should not focus on any aspect of Jiffy Lube’s business—but otherwise the theme and subject are of the artist’s choice.  To see previous murals, visit here.
