“Corydon in Motion” was created to celebrate the character of the neighborhood.  This mural

was the beginning of the Corydon Avenue BIZ’s efforts to establish a fresh new look for the area.

The artistic rendition leaves ample room for mystery and storytelling.  A BMX bike tire suggests  motion, transportation and sport.  The majestic archway at the entrance of Corydon Avenue is viewed as a towering gateway and the row of chairs an array of shops and services that surround and contribute to this community.  Each character sets the tone for style and social activity. A larger than life electric guitar sets the mood for Rock N` Roll and the vintage car mirror reflect an old church, located just down the street.  The billboard states interesting facts about the old church, it was built with remnant stones left over from the construction of our Legislature Building.
