The Indiana Destination Development Corp. awarded three Wabash Valley communities $5,000 for public art projects.

As part of West Central 2025, the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce, City of Sullivan and Sullivan County Tourism, and A&B Farmhouse in Brazil worked together to submit separate competitive applicants for the IDDC Public Art Activation Grant.

The locations of the murals can be found at The Ohio Building in downtown Terre Haute, the City Building on the square in Sullivan and at A& B Farmhouse in Brazil. The hope is to form a regional mural trail to spur residents and tourists to visit each community.

“We are thrilled that all of the applications for our regional mural trail were awarded funding,” says Josh Alsip, director of community engagement at the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce. “This is a testament to not only the quality of our projects but also the momentum that West Central Indiana is experiencing.”

Applicants had to provide details including a location, a local or regional artist, and estimated costs including supplies and fees. Potential public art locations include but are not limited to exterior walls, water towers, alleyways, bridges, barns and more.
