LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The heart of Indiana may actually lie right here in Lafayette.
Haan Museum leaders highlighted all things Indiana at the second annual Celebrate Indiana Festival.
Lafayette sculptors presented two new pieces to the museum's sculpture garden. Other artists also came out to provide entertainment and activities for event go-ers. Admission fees all go to supporting the museum.
Board member Sue Scholer said the museum is a staple for the community and the state.
“This is such a unique gem that we have in our community,” said Scholer. “The Haan's have put together an outstanding collection of Indiana artists and art. All of us need to work together to make sure that we can find the funding to support this into the future.”
Scholer said the museum brings a ripple effect of benefits to the community.
“When you bring people in for here for a tour, from out of state or out of the community, they're likely to stay and have lunch somewhere and so that's part of what we do to build our community economically,” said Scholer.
Scholer said this event was created to bring buzz to the museum. Click here for the Haan Museum’s schedule of events.
