LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The popular Wabash Walls Project is coming back.

Thirteen artists from several states and even different countries are teaming up with the Tippecanoe Arts Federation.
The Murals will showcase different types of Hoosier pride, such as the Peony, our state flower.
The project is estimated to cost 100-thousand dollars.

TAF Executive Director Tetia Lee says she's excited to be a part of something that adds color to the community.

“Just the excitement, the vision, and really being able to represent the values of this neighborhood through the artwork. So, getting to know the residents is the most rewarding thing,” said Lee.

Lee says her favorite part is seeing the paintings come alive.

“We work well as a team and I think that just spreads out with rest of the community, and again, they're just being really receptive of this idea,” said Lee.

To celebrate the return of Wabash Walls, a gathering will be held on Saturday from 11 a-m to two p-m at the junction house community center on Smith Street.
