LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - It was a perfect night Friday for downtown Lafayette's first Gallery Walk of 2013.
Hundreds of people of all ages spent the evening looking at beautiful art in various media, everything from pottery to photographs. It's the 12th year for the annual event.
More than 20 downtown businesses participated. There was plenty of free snacks, drinks and music to help people enjoy the atmosphere. Plus there was also free trolley and carriage rides.
The event is organized by the Tippecanoe Arts Federation.
"We happen to think there is a really rich diversity of art in this community. So for us, what makes it special, is seeing all the art," says artist and TAF board member Dwayne Daehler.
There are two more Gallery Walks this year, July 12 and Sept. 20.
