The site of this mural is located near Eli Lilly & Company, an international pharmaceutical company headquarted in Indianapolis. Lilly was the first company to mass-produce penicillin, the world’s first antibiotic, in the 1940’s, thus marking the beginning of a sustained effort to fight infectious diseases.
This mural features repeated images of penicillin as seen under magnification. The design flows organically around the columns, simulating a field of plant life. Urban Fields
