This Riverside mural project was coordinated by the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) as a part of Indy Do Day 2015. The mural was designed for the community by local artist David Anderson. IMA and IUPUI volunteers did the mural installation and painting on October 1-3, 2015. Mo McReynolds, the IMA’s coordinator for the project states, “We could not have accomplished this project without the generosity of Mike and Annie Martin at AR Enterprises and Summit Construction (across the street) who donated supplies, artist commission, and location.”
Indy Do Day, a community partnership led by the Rotary Club of Indianapolis, is a “day of service” that helps the people of Indianapolis get to know their neighbors, take ownership of their neighborhoods, and take care of one another. Indy Do Day is described here as “decentralized, ground-up, people-powered community improvement…about building the most civically-engaged community in the nation where every day is a Do Day.”
