LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Upgrades are coming to the home of the Tippecanoe Arts Federation.
The historic Wells Community Cultural Center on North Street will be renovated.
Plans call for several art galleries, a performance space and a dance room.
Community leaders broke ground Friday afternoon.
The building was built in 1926, so the upgrades will help modernize the building. That way TAF can provide more opportunities for artists, students and others in the community.
That's something Mayor Tony Roswarski supports.
"The way that we do downtown art, the way we do public art, the way we got our youth more involved with the mural projects and all of those, I do feel like TAF is making a tremendous impact on the community," said Roswarski.
The renovations should take about a year to complete.
