An alley of art in Fountain Square

The Indiana Photographic Society had its opening reception Friday night for a second showing of its "Heart and Soul" photography exhibit. 
 The photo club had a first run, in April through May, of "Through the Lens: Heart and Soul" at the Garfield Park Arts Center in Indianapolis. In the weeks leading up to that show, the Fountain Square Branch of Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library invited club members to bring a portion of the images from the GPAC show to display at the library branch for two months, this month and August, during normal library hours. 
Friday's reception coincided with the monthly First Friday art walk in the Fountain Square cultural district, so I found it fitting that on my departure from the photo club's reception about 8:45 p.m., and during a walk through an alley behind the library en route to my car, I came across several striking paintings on the backsides of buildings fronting the alley. There were several "art works" in this short one-block alley, although I'm not sure the alley was officially designated for such work ... or that any of the works was commissioned.
The images you see here are those art works I came across.
