Honoring Butler-Tarkington's Legacy of Black Achievement

The Black Legacy Project - Butler Tarkington is an art installation on the historic Concord Building, 3802 N. Illinois, depicting accomplished individuals from the Butler-Tarkington neighborhood. The display is the result of a nearly three year collaboration between Midtown Indy executive director Michael McKillip and curator Sabae Martin, a long-time Butler Tarkington resident and Butler Tarkington Neighborhood Association board member. They teamed up with designer Wil Marquez, owner of w/purpose design, who crafted graphics of physician Harvey Middleton, Rep. Hariette Conn, and Dr. George Rawls and others as well as inspirational quotes from local luminaries such as jazz musician Wes Montgomery, poet Mari Evans, and Rep. Julia Carson.
