Trivergence by Carl Leck is a series of overpass murals in Indianapolis, located on East 10th St. under I-65. Measuring approximately 1,000 linear feet, it was painted by a group of volunteers as part of the 46 for XLVI mural initiative [public art created in preparation for Indy hosting the Super Bowl].

The abstract murals are only four years old but already exhibit a fair amount of weathering due to their challenging location:

After eight years of living in Cincinnati, I’d grown accustomed to the high-visibility work of ArtWorks. Public art in Indianapolis is different in that there are many smaller-scale works, as well as pieces tucked into underused spaces such as this. Over the coming months, I’ll continue to share my Indy finds as I discover them.
