Tippecanoe Arts Federation, City of Lafayette to put mural over graffiti

LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Tippecanoe Arts Federation and various volunteer artists in collaboration with the City of Lafayette are working on a Mural Art Project.

In December 2007 the City of Lafayette approved a proposal submitted by artist and TAF Business Manager, David Raymer, to produce a mural on city owned property which has experienced a high concentration of “graffiti tagging”.

The project involves direct art education of Cary Home Youth who will help produce the artwork on the mural with other volunteers. The site location is the wall under the Twikingham overpass along the City of Lafayette Parks Department’s walking trail between South 9th and 18th Streets. Because of the specifics of the surface at the site, the Mural Project will be composed of multiple themes in various monochromatic colors.

Sponsors of the project are Purdue Employee Federal Credit Union and ICI/Glidden Paints-MarJean Village.

The artists and youth volunteers will be at the site this Thursday, May 1st beginning at 4:15pm painting the base primer on the surface.

Interested individuals who wish to volunteer may contact Mr. Raymer at Tippecanoe Arts Federation, 423-2787 or by e-mail draymer@tippecanoearts.org
