Graffiti Class of 2018 Mural
Date created: 2018
This mural was painted by the Indianapolis Art Center’s Graffiti Mural Camp, and executed June 11-15, 2018. The camp was led by professional mural artists Matt Lawrence and James Quebbeman.

It includes lighthearted imagery and encouraging messages, as well as a message of peace and solidarity in response to the Noblesville school shooting in late May 2018.
Students involved include: Halle Cole, Mary Cowdin, Kaya Edwards, Justin Gershman, Helen Hauser, Ana Kurek, Samantha Landreth, Cooper Rigney, Eve Swanson, Julia Sweet, Lillian Watness, and Kenley Williams.
