The artist’s vision for The Gateway was to visually unlock the energy, activity and life of Broad Ripple. She intended to create a design that complements the unique identity of the neighborhood, with its diverse street life, shops, restaurants, night life, and downtime with one’s family.
Michelle Carollo is a Brooklyn, NY-based artist whose strong graphic style is ideal for large scales. “I’m not so interested in making these grand political statements,” she says. “I’m more interested in creating a sense of beauty…capturing energy, the excitement, the idea of fun, of contemporary movement and culture.”
The artwork was facilitated by the Indianapolis Art Center.
