Big Car is excited to announce that we’re teaming up with Citizens Energy Group on the DigIndy Art Project for the third year! This time we’ll collaborate to paint a mural on Citizens’ pump station located at 3750 West Washington Street in Indianapolis.
DigIndy started in 2018 to use public art to raise awareness of the DigIndy Tunnel System, a 28-mile network of tunnels located 250 feet under the city. Once complete in 2025, DigIndy will virtually eliminate sewer overflows into area waterways.
In 2019, DigIndy partnered with Big Car to highlight some of the major changes taking place under our feet and allow community members to become involved. Eight Indianapolis-based artists developed manhole cover designs to visualize our city’s future with enhanced waterways as a result of the DigIndy Tunnel System.
In 2020, we worked with local artist and illustrator, Ess McKee, to paint a colorful mural on a pump house building at Meridian Street and Westfield Avenue near the canal, an important water source for Indianapolis.
Just like DigIndy will help improve our waterways, the DigIndy Art Project enhances our community’s quality of life with art.
We are reaching out to ask for your help in designing this year’s mural. Please take this survey and tell us what you love about Indy’s waterways to inspire this year’s art.
Thank you for being part of this exciting project!
