This was a temporary art installation. The Walking Men are no longer set up as listed in earlier tips -- but a few are left. Eight of them are at 29th Street and Martin Luther King Jr Blvd in a vacant lot.

The Walking Man Project

There is an art project called the Walking Man Project. Sixteen-foot-tall metal walking men and women can be found throughout Anderson. They are all painted differently. It is fun to see if you can find all of the Walking Men.

[Jane, 03/28/2013]

The flat, stick-like Walking Men (and Women) were created by artists Levi Rinker and Laree Blazer, but are customized by many other artists. There are currently over 30 scattered around the city, with names such as "Full Spectrum" and "App."
