The Mill Creek Mural Project is the result of a partnership between the HCAC, Mill Creek Elementary Schools, the Town of Clayton and the Leadership of Hendricks County Class of 2022. It serves as a specific venture under the umbrella of the Hendricks County Mural Society.
In 2022, the Hendricks County Arts Council (HCAC) was awarded a matching grant from the Hendricks County Community Foundation to design and install a series of county-wide murals. The Hendricks County Mural Society, an initiative of HCAC, originated with the goal of helping communities in Hendricks County create new murals to build community awareness, pride of place, and unity.

In March of 2023, students at Mill Creek East Elementary met with the artist and brainstormed ideas for the new mural. They also received individual copies of the book, “Hey Wall” by Susan Verde, donated by United Way of Central Indiana.
