This wraparound design of an aquarium deftly mixes the expected with the unexpected. The artist has shown both the inside and the outside of the aquarium, adding the cat on the outside as he views his own tail on the other side through the water. The views are true to what an actual aquarium looks like.

Artist Travis Neal lives in Indianapolis and specializes in mural artwork.
The artist of this mural was inspired by the hot air balloons that can be seen hovering over Fishers, courtesy of nearly Conner Prairie. Balloon Ride is his take on this iconic sight. A tiny mouse rides as a passenger in each balloon–motorists miss this detail, but it is a special reward for pedestrians.

Artist Marc Anderson is fascinated with transportation, and was inspired by this site to create a design featuring a bicycle in silhouette. Its simple pattern of vibrant pink and deep black zig-zags contrasts nicely with the outline of a bicycle in white. The artist injects his sense of humor into all his work, and has included a special surprise at the front of the bike between the wheel and the handlebars. Motorists miss it, but it is a reward he has created for pedestrians and, of course, bicyclists.

Visiting Canada geese are a feature of Fishers, and artist William Denton Ray has taken his signature whimsical, graphic style and applied it to the subject. Using a very controlled color palette, he has stripped the birds’ elements to basic shapes to form an almost abstract design.

Face the Music
The title of this artwork accurately describes the content: faces, and music! Inspired by the rhythm of the human spirit, the artist used a very controlled color palette for maximum graphic impact. He hopes that viewers will feel encouraged to interpret the work for themselves.

This sunny mural conjures up the feeling of a bright day in early spring. The four sides of the signal box display yellow daffodils with green stems against a yellow grass lawn, and a blue-and-white streaked background of sky. Thick black outlines reminiscent of classic woodcuts provide contrast and separate the colors.
