LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- With Memorial Day this coming Monday, another Greater Lafayette tradition is right around the corner.
The annual 'Round the Fountain Art Fair will be Saturday, May 25th from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM.
For over 30 years, artists and art lovers alike have gathered for the one-day fair on the grounds of the Tippecanoe County Courthouse. Up to 100 artists from around the country will showcase their work.
Terry Lucterhand said all funds raised during the event will go towards funding art programs at local schools.
"We saw a need that was different than our original plan and have now adapted to this other style of providing funding," said Lucterhand.
Every year, the 'Round the Fountain Art Fair committee purchases a piece of art to add to the permanent collection exhibited in the halls of the Tippecanoe County Courthouse.
Tours of the permanent display will be offered at 10:00 AM, 1:00PM, and 3:00 PM day of.
