About the Design
6th Street Arts Alley brings together public space and art to enhance our downtown area. Local design firm LAA Office developed a scheme to turn the area between Washington and Franklin Streets into a place where people can hang out, have fun, and enjoy events. Phase 1 included a 10,000 sq ft ground-plane mural created by LAA Office with help from IU Architecture students and the community. The addition of custom stools, moveable planters, and a mural Odd Fellows building by Nick Abtract creates a room-like feeling.
With close proximity to art and cultural organizations and local businesses, this creative placemaking project designed by LAA Office is shaping 6th Street into a dynamic space for programs and community activities at the heart of the city.
