Jiffy Lube of Indiana and the Arts Council of Indianapolis have named five Hoosier artists to expand the company’s “Every Part Matters” public art project. The artists were chosen from a record pool of 65 applicants to add five new murals across Indiana.

“Every Part Matters” launched in 2015 with a goal of embracing the arts and giving back to the community. The project has already transformed the exterior walls at nine statewide Jiffy Lube buildings into colorful murals.

“Most people wouldn’t expect to see public art at a place where you get your oil changed, but we’re trying to change the way business owners in Indiana and nationwide think about the arts,” said Steve Sanner, president and owner of Jiffy Lube of Indiana in a news release. “It is an exciting time to be part of a project like this as it takes on a life of its own, positively impacting our business, improving our communities, and exciting our people.”

Julia Muney Moore director of public art for the Arts Council said the artists have not been given any themes or subject assignments so what they make is unrestricted. They will be able to create something meaningful to themselves and the community.

All murals are expected to be completed by the end of October 2019.

The nine currently completed Jiffy Lube murals can be found in Broad Ripple, Castleton, Glendale, Carmel, Georgetown Road, and W. 38th St. as well as in Lafayette and Brownsburg.
