The imagery of this mural reflects the vibrant atmosphere of Broad Ripple Village, particularly its youth culture. It was painted in 2012 to help prevent tagging of the wall by providing something fun and interesting to look at. The Kilroy’s logo appears along with the “Kilroy” character, a bald man seen as if peeking over the logo. The limited color palette gives it an intriguing graphic look.
The character of “Kilroy” dates back to World War II, where it was a common graffiti image drawn
