Sixteen Art on the Street sculptures were installed along Public Road in April. Artists and Poets wishing to enter See & Respond may visit the sculptures in person or view them on the City of Lafayette website, www.cityoflafayette.com/aots. The Art on the Street sculpture walk provides the community with a full access interactive art experience year round. Artists are asked to respond to current Art on the Street Sculptures. This is the sixth year of the See & Respond Art Show.
More information on the See & Respond Art Show is available at www.cityoflafayette.com/seeandrespond. This program is not limited to local artists. Lafayette has vibrant art community, and a strong citywide arts program. Don’t miss the chance to be part of the art that Lafayette has to offer. Local artists, as well as artists from other regions are encouraged to apply for these opportunities to display work in a unique and eclectic art environment where community members are appreciative and encouraging and tourists and visitors come for a special opportunity to share in Lafayette’s art scene.
