Mosey Crosswalks Project

This past weekend, The City of Lafayette hosted an opportunity for members of the community to participate in creating some of the artwork found downtown. At Mosey Down Main Street, people gathered to paint a crosswalk that has newly been restored by the Streetscapes project.

A big thank you goes out to those who participated and an especially big thank you goes to artists Petronio Bendito and Linda Vanderkolk for their collaboration on this public art outreach.

Here are a few photos from the event.
