More About Swish

Swish will shine a spotlight on the city’s creative talent as the city welcomes all 68 NCAA men’s basketball tournament teams and fans from across the nation, while employing central Indiana artists who have lost significant income during the pandemic due to event cancellations and venue closures. The Arts Council of Indianapolis put out a public call for artists in February, and received more than 560 submissions. Swish is funded through a Lilly Endowment Inc. grant received by Indiana Sports Corp. to create a safe, welcoming environment for local residents and visitors during the tournament.
