33 Indiana artists commemorate 100th Indy 500 race

April 4, 2016

About three dozen artists from Indiana were tasked with creating their own take on the "Welcome Race Fans" signs that canvass the city leading up to the Indianapolis 500.

It's an effort to commemorate the 100th running of the race. The initiative is a collaboration between the Arts Council of Indianapolis and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Works will be on display at businesses and community centers throughout the city as well as at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway until the race, which is scheduled for May 29.

Vice president of the Arts Council Shannon Linker said the 33 pieces cover a range of artistic styles and are made from different media to represent the diversity of Indiana.

The 33 art pieces can be seen on the arts council web site. Free posters are available at the Indianapolis Artsgarden, Gallery 924 at the Arts Council and at the IMS ticket office.
