9825 Fall Creek Road, Indianapolis, IN, 46256
Our Waterways is a tribute to nearby Fall Creek and the rich and varied life that it sustains. Blue herons, banded water snakes, and dragonflies are combined with abstracted wave and sun patterns and a kayak-and-paddle motif to create appreciation in viewers of the valuable asset that runs literally through their backyards. The waterway is an important part of the ecosystem we all share, and a reminder that in this part of Indiana, we are all in a watershed.
Christina Hollering is an Indianapolis-based artist, inspired in equal measure by science fiction and the natural world. In her work she offers the viewer fantastical abstracted landscapes based on semi-recognizable objects and images, in homage to the transcendental moments in life when the ordinary suddenly becomes something more. Although most of her work is elaborately cut paper, this was her first painted mural.
Our Waterways was created through a partnership between Jiffy Lube of Indiana and the Arts Council of Indianapolis. The partnership is an opportunity to showcase local artists, beautify commercial corridors with original public art murals, and encourage viewers through positive images while expressing the goals of Jiffy Lube’s programming: Growing People Through Work.
