LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A new Mural is now up in Frankfort, Indiana.
The mural sits on 51 West Event Center and includes a tree with heart-shaped flowers floating off of it, and a painted swing, where people can take photos.
Frankfort Community Development Director Annie Bacon says the goal for the painting is to spark local interests into downtown Frankfort and allow community members to be proud of where they live.
"They wanted something the community could be a part of that would bring a bright spot to downtown Frankfort," said Bacon.
The Mural was made possible by Frankfort Future Leaders Advisory Council, Tippecanoe Arts Federation and the city of Frankfort.
"We started working on this back in the end of March, and they had to figure out what they (Frankfort Future Leaders Advisory Council) wanted for their quality of place project and we decided on the idea of a mural," said Bacon.
Bacon says this couldn't have been possible without the youth taking part in the project.
"The Frankfort Future Leaders advisory council one of the big benefits of them is that we get as city leaders hear their voice and hear what matters to them," added Bacon. "Anything we can do to encourage that youth voice and put their input into their community helps us grow and be a stronger city,"
The mural was painted by Mitchell Schuring otherwise known as MetaByte.
Schuring is an artist who is known for elaborate murals throughout Indiana and was recently involved with the Wabash Walls Project.
