Speedway Arts Council invites the community to help paint a new mural


The mural will be painted from April 29 to May 1, as well as May 3, in the parking lot of Barbecue and Bourbon at Speedway.

SPEEDWAY, Ind. – This weekend, the Speedway Arts Council is inviting the community to help paint a new mural on Main Street.

“We really want to involve the community in the arts and really create an arts culture here at Speedway so that people who come to visit the city in May can come and experience more than just the things that happen on the track,” Speedway Arts Council Chair Katie Maiers said.

The mural was designed by Speedway Arts Council board member Chris Nusbaum.

“We’re blessed to have IMS here. We have wonderful businesses, wonderful business owners, so we see this as a kind of global community,” Nusbaum said. “Not just the people who live here, but the people who work here, the people who own businesses. We wanted to do something that would celebrate this community.”

The mural will feature an IndyCar from 1926, when the town of Speedway was incorporated.

“For residents to have this opportunity and for the business owners and people who work and play here and visit Speedway to be truly part of creating this, I think that just deepens that connection,” Nusbaum said. . “It allows them to take a piece home with them.”

The mural will be painted from April 29 to May 1, as well as May 3, in the parking lot of Barbecue and Bourbon at Speedway. People can register online to work on the mural for an hour at a time.

“Everyone is really excited to come and participate in this,” Maiers said. “It’s something new. Speedway has never had a paint-by-number mural like this before, and the design we found from Chris, it lends itself so well to that concept.”

The people who show up to paint will contribute to the background colors of the mural.
