LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A new piece of public art has hit the scene in Downtown Lafayette.
A mural painted by area teens is on the front of Brent's Bench music shop on South Fourth Street.
Roughly 10 teenagers from an after-school arts program called "The Mural Class" designed and painted the piece.
Art teacher Zach Medler says projects like these make the community a more interesting place to live.
"It involves people. Typically, community-oriented things are outside of the box ideas to begin with," Medler said. "What better way to approach it than with art?"
The piece is based on a Picasso painting entitled "Three Musicians."
"The Mural Class" is sponsored by the Tippecanoe County Arts Federation.
