Meaningful Volunteer Opportunities in the Arts!

Meaningful Volunteer Opportunities in the Arts!

The Lafayette Cultural Arts Commission (LCAC) looks for citizens who want to plan, assist, advocate for, and participate in the cultural arts. A commissioner does not have to be an artist. One must believe that the spectrum of cultural arts is an important part of what makes Lafayette vital and special and want to commit time to that idea. We also seek to reach under-served populations in Lafayette and hope you can assist us in those goals.
Apply now!
The Public Art Committee (PAC), a subcommittee of the Cultural Arts Commission (LCAC), is an advisory group appointed by City Council to review proposals and make recommendations regarding the selection and display of public artwork. The PAC is also responsible for advising the Arts and Cultural Resources Department regarding the administration, management, maintenance and repair of public artwork. Apply now!

Stranger Reduction Zone by Timothy Flood

Art on the Street

The 2018 Art on the Street sculptures line Public Road in Old Town Lafayette. Take a stroll or view the website to enjoy the sculptures.
Stranger Reduction Zone
Denver, Colorado
Location: Southwest side of Festival Plaza
Medium: Aluminium, plastic and electronics
Price: $6,000.00
Artist Statement: Stranger reduction zone was the merger of three thoughts; that individuals in urban environments are reluctant to talk to people they don’t know, that people in urban environments may regularly cross paths with other people due to daily routines, and that a stronger and safer urban community could be built by getting to know each other a little bit. My sculpture aims to help create a more familiar urban community by encouraging people to venture outside their personal bubble a bit and meet someone new, even if it’s just learning their name. www.timothyflood.com www.strangerreductionzone. com Share your pictures on facebook: Stranger Reduction Zone
