INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Sports Corp and Indy Arts Council announced the five central Indiana artists selected to create the 2024 All Lanes Lead to Indy artworks.

Selected from a pool of 72 applicants, the five artists who will create this year’s welcoming artwork are Kyng Rhodes, Joy Hernandez, Lucie Rice, Mary Mindiola, and Monroe Bush.

The All Lanes Lead to Indy Art Project is an initiative of the Indy Arts Council, Indiana Sports Corp, and USA Swimming in support and celebration of the 2024 U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials. The project seeks to showcase artwork created by central Indiana artists to raise awareness for the event, inspire individuals through the sport of swimming, and encourage the community to join us for this historical moment.

“The U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials will be the event of the summer as we welcome visitors from around the country to Indianapolis to experience nine exciting nights of competition,” said Indiana Sports Corp President Patrick Talty. “The All Lanes Lead to Indy Art represents how this event impacts every area of our community, will be an important part of our downtown activations, and will truly showcase to fans that All Lanes Lead to Indy.”

Each artist will create a piece of original artwork, to be placed throughout the city during the Olympic Swimming Trials June 15-23, using their own unique processes and styles to showcase the theme of “All Lanes Lead to Indy.”
