INDIANAPOLIS — After collecting old political yard signs, local artists in Fountain Square received more than a dozen transformed into pieces of art.
Organizers started collecting the yard signs after the election, hoping to keep them from going to landfills. The signs were donated to artists to use as canvases.
Next week, they plan to put the art on display and up for sale.
“It’s a novel way to get people to come out and look at free canvases,” said Tad Aschliman, owner of a studio at 1336 Shelby Street. “There are plenty of artists out there, just aren’t many ways to display your art and sell your art, especially now.”
Aschliman says they are planning to hold an art show next weekend at their studio.
