WABASH WALLS - LaFayette, Indiana
It was such an honor to curate and work alongside Tippecanoe Arts Federation to put on LaFayette Indiana’s first mural festival titled Wabash Walls.
We brought in 7 artists from around the United States, 1 from overseas and 3 locals. Together we transferred an entire neighborhood in just over a week putting up 20 pieces of art. This neighborhood used to be known as one that you wouldn’t go to unless you lived there or took a wrong turn. But thanks to the folks at Habitat for Humanity and Sacred Grounds Reclaimed coffee shop, the neighborhood has taken a turn. We were lucky enough to play a small part in a larger story, helping the rest of the city what an amazing neighborhood Wabash is.
Indiana has become my own personal “Jackson Hole”. It is my rest time even though I’m working so hard I’m there. I feel energized and get excited to see my once new friends that have now become old friends. I have a community there and my community has deepened with the Wabash community.
