Northeast Indiana's Aspiring Muralists

Make It Your Own Mural Fest is an opportunity to celebrate the power of public art and how it enhances a community’s quality of life. In addition to the installation of 11 murals across Northeast Indiana’s 11 counties, we are also working with aspiring regional artists! If a county is not listed below, that indicates there was not a mentee assigned to that mural. 

Each aspiring artist below will be paired with a muralist and contribute to the installation of a large-scale mural. For many artists, this will be their first time contributing to something of this sale. For other artists, this is another exercise in releasing their creativity and enhancing their artistic skills.

For questions about the mentorship program, please reach out to
