TAF recognizes the value of public art in the quality of life throughout North Central Indiana. Wabash Walls is a collaborative educational outreach program that serves the quality of life of underserved individuals and communities.
This region-wide public art project features murals developed, executed, and installed in counties served by The Arts Federation. Wabash Walls aims to increase county and regional vitality.


The implementation of this project in each county 1) removes blight 2) creates tourist destinations 3) increases property values in adjacent areas 4) provides community pride and ownership 5) improves quality of life and 6) increases workforce retention. Each mural is featured in a prominent county location and residents of each community develop themes and select their respective artworks and artists.


In addition to community-specific murals, Wabash Walls presents an annual mural festival that is recognized as the first mural festival to take place in the state of Indiana. Artists from around the globe have contributed their talents to the program.
