Neon at night

Historic neon sign replica installed at The Collective

December marked the latest historic pursuit in Old Town with the installation of an updated version of an iconic neon sign that once hung at 201 N. Public Road. Efforts to further recapture the full impact of the building’s historic façade by incorporating a replica of the “Coors on Tap” neon sign came to fruition this winter.  The Lafayette Urban Renewal Authority commissioned the  reproduction sign with a twist, one that incorporated the words “Arts on Tap” to creatively promote the new community arts center.
