Seizing the Summer with Fishers Public Art 

With the summer months fast approaching, Fishers is the place for people of all ages and interests to enjoy some summer fun. Whether it be one of the many murals in the city or the grand opening of the Fishers Arts Center, there is something neat to embrace around every corner of Fishers this summer.  

Fishers Arts Center Inaugural Exhibition  

1 Municipal Drive 

There’s a lot to be excited for surrounding the opening of the Fishers Arts Center this summer, including the opening of Kurt Vonnegut’s Balderdash exhibit. This inaugural exhibition is a collaboration with the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library, featuring art from both the museum and the Indy Art Center.  

If art is something that interests you, the Fishers Art Center offers programs and classes for all ages. Spend the summer taking classes, attending summer camps, and exploring the unique gallery exhibitions offered in partnership with the Indianapolis Arts Center. Registration for Make It Take It classes for adults and summer camps is available at

Buckets at Brooks School Mural  

11780 Brooks School Road 

Painted by Hamilton Southeastern High School graduate and artist Koda Witsken, this mural is a collaboration with NBA star Gary Harris. The two Fishers natives teamed up to create murals on basketball courts at Brooks School Park. Harris is not only a current player on the Orlando Magic, but he is also a graduate of Hamilton Southeastern High School with a record-setting basketball career during his in high school. Harris was the 2012 Mr. Indiana Basketball with a school record of 1,540 points, 467 rebounds, 232 assists and 232 steals. Witsken founded her own art business in 2018 called Hue Murals, and she has since worked on other murals in Fishers, including the exterior of Alderman Automotive and in Fishers District. 

Greetings from Fishers Mural 

684 E. 116th Street 

Painted along the Nickel Plate Trail, this mural by the Wilkinson Brothers adds a vibrant sight to stop and see on any walk or run. The hand-painted artwork is displayed on one of the oldest buildings in the city, featuring various elements of Fishers that tell the story of the community in the past and present.  

Synapse Sculpture  

Commercial Drive and Lantern Road 

If you’re craving more art to admire while out on your summer walks, the 10-foot tall sculpture by Owens + Crawley is another piece found along the Nickel Plate Trail. Be sure to check out this new art piece when you’re shopping at the Fishers Farmers Market on Saturday mornings or after you stop by the Hamilton East Public Library to get books for their Summer Reading Program.  

Mudsock Horsepower Mural  

13875 Trade Center Drive 

Another work by Koda Witsken of Hue Murals, this mural located at Alderman Automotive celebrates the history of the city’s nickname of “Mudsock,” which refers to the knee-high mud that would coat the horses pulling the carriages through the city. The reference to this old nickname is still honored by many local sports teams and organizations, and the mural serves as a reminder of Fishers as a “smart, vibrant, entrepreneurial” meeting place for people, commerce, and culture. The mural is a true community collaboration – over 150 ideas were submitted by Fishers as inspiration for the mural.
