Community Development

Recent video featured on Life.Style.Live!  highlighting some of my recent community mural projects around the city.

Girls School Road Tunnel

2022 Community Project along the B&O trail in Indianapolis between Speedway and Brownsburg (under Girl School road by Ben Davis High School). In April of 2022, I answered an art call for a volunteer artist to help a local Boy Scout with his final project to design and lead a mural project so he could receive his Eagle Badge.  After much research with the feedback and support of Speedway Trails the B&O Trails Association and Indy Gateway, Inc,  this design was selected for approval for painting July 2022. Throughout the week of July 11th, I led a group of volunteers from Indy Mission to paint the background and sketched the outline of the design. That following Saturday, July 16, more volunteers from BSA and Speedway Trails came to paint the mural in a paint-by-number fashion.  I spent many hours with the Eagle Scouts parents finishing up the final touches the remainder of the month and much of August. I know I personally spent about 80 hours of combined design and physical painting to complete this project.   Huge HUGE thank you to all who participated: Speedway Trails, the B&O Trail Association, Indy Gateway, @Next Level Trails, Central Indiana Community Foundation for your partnership. Also a big thank you to Lowe's Home Improvement on 10th street and Sherwin-Williams off Crawfordsville rd for helping with the paint funds! and Special thanks to Connor Endres and his family, as well as Boy Scout Troop 97 in Indianapolis, Mission Indy and to all the helpers that assisted with either the early design process to the physical painting of this piece. None of this would be possible without you all!  Click here to view more photos of this project: Girls School Tunnel Mural

Rivoli Park Labyrinth

943 N Kealing Ave Indianapolis, IN 46201

Since 2013, this pocket park has been a beacon of hope for the neighborhood. Located in the Rivoli Park Neighborhood on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis, The Rivoli Park Labyrinth has been a place for art, wildlife, community, and reflection for many different people. As a community of people who have been inspired by this place, this fundraising campaign is a time to come together to support the longevity of the Rivoli Park Labyrinth. This mural was designed by Shannon McKeon and volunteers from Pro Act Indy, The Church Within, and Kids Count helped paint the creation on the fence here at the labyrinth. The concept was to pay an homage to Indiana's beautiful summer sunsets and the labyrinth with all the wildlife and butterflies and ecosystem that it creates with it's beautiful garden.

Good Vibes

"Good Vibes" Location: Richards Brick Oven Pizza, Franklin, IN

In 2019, I was chosen as a winner out of 50 applicants as part of a Mural Design competition from the Johnson County Mural Program. After the design was sketched out, about 100+ members of the community joined me in painting the majority of the design. The experience was amazing and certainly one I will never forget! I hope to continue more fun projects like this to bring people together and create  special thanks to the Johnson County Community Foundation for this wonderful program (Color the County) and opportunity.
