LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - As the Tippecanoe Arts Federation looks to continue its Wabash Walls project this summer, it is also turning its focus to the Ellsworth-Romig neighborhood.
That neighborhood is near the Wabash neighborhood, from 3rd to 8th Streets and Kossuth to South Streets.
The Lafayette Redevelopment Commission approved to hire TAF as a contractor at its monthly meeting on Thursday. TAF will be working with community members in the coming months to establish how they want to see art brought to their neighborhood.
"We're super excited that we get to serve as a dedicated resource for the Ellsworth-Romig neighborhood, similar in the capacity that we served the Wabash neighborhood," said Ann Fields-Monical, Cheif Operating Officer for TAF.
It could take the form of murals, similar to what was brought to the Wabash neighborhood, or possibly 3-D sculptures.
"We don't want to change the culture of the neighborhood," she said. "We really want to help them amplify that by selecting and facilitating the creating of artworks that will help them really say who they are."
TAF hopes to have a more established plan by summer time.
