Downtown Small Spaces art project about to begin

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Downtown Lafayette will soon be a little more colorful thanks to the Small Spaces art project.

As News 18 previously reported, artist Zach Medler is planning the Small Spaces project to paint murals on small abandoned spaces and exterior walls in downtown Lafayette.

Medler and 12 to 15 other street artists will soon begin painting the wall located on 219 Main St. in downtown Lafayette. The wall will be a showcase of the talents of all of the artists participating in the project.

Medler said the wall will be the biggest collaboration of the project.

“I’m really excited about this wall,” said Medler. “This is a big wall and this is a way that we can incorporate all of the small stuff into sort of a base piece.”

Medler also said the hardest part is getting people to understand the purpose of the project.

“We really don’t want to mess up anything here. We want to work with everybody,” Medler said. This isn’t graffiti. This isn’t illegal. This is legal and we want to be able to work with the community.”

Painting for the project is expected to start in July and last until late September.
