The triptych mural, created by Shannon M. Johnson, depicts the past, present, and future vision for the Cole Noble District of downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. Funded in part by an Imagine Grant administered through Downtown Indianapolis, Inc., the mural was commissioned in 2011, installed in 2012, and dedicated on May 24, 2012.
Located on the north wall of the Flanner & Buchanan Funeral Center at the corner of College Avenue and Market Street, the Cole Noble District Mural uses three panels to represent the neighborhood. On the left side, the mural highlights the history of the neighborhood with the foundation of Cole Motor Cars. In the center, the mural draws attention to sports and entertainment in the area today. On the right side, the mural depicts community renewal and growth in the future. The mural was created using source photography and illustrations provided by the Indiana Historical Society and the Indianapolis Star.
The artist is an Indianapolis-based creative communications and marketing support professional. With a diverse experience in marketing, communications, and graphic design, Johnson has worked on a number of projects in the area, including client service, arts, civic, social, political, corporate, and private projects.
