Project Overview

The Fishers Arts & Culture Commission (FACC) seeks an artist, artist team, or creative company to
design a gateway feature located within a median on the west side of Exit 205, E 116th Street and
I-69 in Fishers, Indiana.

The gateway feature and art installation are intended to be representative of Fishers and the Nickel
Plate District, a statewide designated cultural district. Artists are encouraged to maximize the use
of color, texture, variations in height, and lighting. The installation must be durable and projected to
withstand weather conditions for up to ten (10) years.

The site for this artistic feature has a strict footprint determined by the City and the Indiana
Department of Transportation (INDOT). Artists must work with both entities to ensure that the
design meets all legal and design standards and best practices.
