A large two-panel mural featuring Amelia Earhart and other well-known pioneers, who made in impact on Indiana's transportation, is being installed this week in the Indianapolis Airport.
A three-dimensional, 8 ft. molded statue of Earhart, the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic, will be bolted onto the mural.
Besides Earhart, the mural depicts the stories of Lewis & Clark, Major Taylor, Native Americans, African-Americans, Irish immigrants and women who shaped the state's transportation.
The mural was created by New Orleans artist, Marcus Akinlana. It can be found on the ground level in the baggage claim area of the airport's Col. H. Weir Cook Terminal.
