Broad Ripple Flower Alley
Broad Ripple Flower Alley
The Broad Ripple Flower Alley is a PASSION PROJECT that organically took shape in the summer of 2019 between a couple of neighbors wanting to share some love with the community
- by beautifying it.
We LOVE watching our alley BLOOM year round and GROW!
The picture gallery above shows the initial 4 flower murals in the making: Poppies, Red Roses, Sun Flowers and then the Morning Glories;
as well as it features some of the many glorious additions.
It is hard to keep up as they spread like wild flowers!

Opening our garage door will never be a dull moment again! We always end up greeting or meeting someone new that is smiling right back at us, often complimenting or thanking us for providing this colorful stretch of walking path...
We love to hear from you!
Our beloved (and initially hesitant) neighbor Jim Korn, joined in on the fun in the Fall of 2020 with a mural of his own. Not quite sold on the flower theme for himself, he settled for the brilliant compromise in depicting a field of Indiana corn... #begrateful (in reference to the Grateful Dead.) After sticking his toes in the water and feeling the temperature, he went ALL IN creating quite the RIPPLE EFFECT with his new born tradition of offering live music to the community in the alley. These events from last fall to this Spring REVIVAL continue to blossom and grow just like the alley!
"CAN YOU FEEL THE LOVE?!"
Don't miss the next one!
Jules Muck is born in England, a graffiti and mural artist now based in Venice, California. She and her tight knit crew (Kyle and Dada, aka the boys) had been on a cross-country journey to stop and paint wherever the demand for her art surges... Working with Jules (IS SO MUCH FUN!) created enough buzz to get that momentum we needed to get enough people to want to join in. Jules works so fast that it really helps people to get a quick idea of what things could look like and to get on board; plus it truly satisfies that rewarding instant gratification feeling!
It's magical to watch her work.
Even though the project started with a few Jules Muck murals, the Broad Ripple Flower Alley is of course not limited to her work. On the contrary, we encourage a diverse participation! The more the merrier, & the more culturally interesting! Anytime someone reaches out with an interest in taking part we share the information of other awesome artists that have part taken to the project as well, such as Abigail Staffelbach and Megan Jefferson. The homeowners then pick the artist, style, vibe, medium they most identify with of course!
It originated in the alley between Carrollton Ave and Guilford Ave at 61st and has been spreading since.
The very first Broad Ripple Flower Alley mural were the Poppies at the back of 6109 Carrollton ave. Second were the stunning Red Roses at the back of 6107 Carrollton Ave, followed by the joyful Sunflowers at the corner of 61st... Morning Glories on the old barn were fourth and the garden just kept growing after that!
