LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The 18th Street underpass on Ferry Street is looking a little brighter.

The Mayor's Youth Council dedicated an eight panel mural focusing on Lafayette history and the transformation of transportation. All of the flowers in the piece are native Indiana flowers.

The panels have been treated to withstand the elements.

Angela Taylor was the lead artist behind the mural and she said she looks forward to seeing more art pop up through the community.

“I think that any art that goes up should encourage anybody and encourage them to definitely do it,” Taylor said. “Just talk to the City. Talk to the Tippecanoe Arts Federation to get it done.”

Taylor designed and drew the piece and members of the Mayor's Youth Council painted.

The Ferry Street Mural was a mutli-year project.
