About The Eighteen

The Eighteen was formed in 2020 after 18 artists created a powerful Black Lives Matter mural in Indianapolis. The mural made national headlines and led the artists to recognize an opportunity to further collaborate, forming the collective.

The group’s artistic practices are diverse in concept and medium, but common themes run throughout their work. The collective, recently featured in The New York Times, had its Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields debut in 2022. The Eighteen’s exhibition goal is to introduce the artists as both individuals and creative professionals.

When discussing how The Eighteen exemplifies the power of art, President Deonna Craig states, “Art is a walking billboard that self-expression is not only necessary but also what makes the world go ‘round. Art and creativity really can change the world. We are exhibiting to show our unique perspective of the society in which we live. Through our artwork, we aim to tell a story that has the power to positively influence perspective and encourage conversation. Art has spoken to us and molded us, and we look forward to sharing that experience.”
