LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Art lovers from the area visited Downtown Lafayette to enjoy pieces of all shapes and sizes Saturday. The annual Round the Fountain Art Fair featured hundreds of Art vendors with work in mixed media, painting, sculptures and more.
Jim Bodenmiller has been around the event since it started 45 years ago. He said the proceeds from art sales go to a great cause.
"Revenues that are generated from the event go to supporting the visual arts programs in our six local high schools so it's a great cause to be supporting," said Bodenmiller.
Artists featured in this year's show were invited by outside judges. The event was also free for the public to attend.
