Big George Was Our Friend x Mardelay

BigGeorgeWasOurFriend

Big George was our friend.

I didn’t know him, but I bet George was cooler than a polar bear’s toenails.  I just picture him helping an old woman across the street, then chugging a beer faster than you.

My friend Scott lives in Fountain Square, a growing cultural district in downtown Indianapolis.   In a nearby alley, you can find this mural of Big George.  When I asked him about it, he said no one’s sure who the artist is, or if Big George was an actual person.  Either way, this is my favorite piece of public art at the moment.  Simple, awesome & oddly-placed.

Scott’s band, Mardelay, thought it was cool, too.  They played a few songs for The Indianapolis Star with Big George watching over, helping promote their record release party at Radio Radio this past Saturday 4/25.  Check out the set, and a short interview below:
