About This Walk

We will walk around downtown Gary to photograph the historic buildings and some of the many street art murals in the downtown area. If anyone is interested after the photo walk, we can drive to 18th Street Gary Brewery & Taproom 5725 Miller Ave Gary, IN to review our photos together.

I am a member of the Decay Devils which is a non-profit organization in Gary that has used photography and art to help save and protect landmark buildings in Gary. If you have taken one of our Ride to Preservation bike rides, this photo walk will allow you more time to take photos at each location.

But this is a comprehensive list of the artists and their murals you can see on Saturday. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1SPAwXjUDsW58gVIUAXPbseoBRkpBN02q/view
