Robot mural.

Bizarre Murals

There are a series of colorful, bizarre murals in the alleys one-to-three blocks north and east of Fountain Square. They are mostly, but not all, of a science fiction genre, part of a series named "46 for XLVI," sponsored by the Arts Council of Indianapolis. I found them after noticing a small section of one of them as I looked down an alley while walking down the street.
