The Mural Art Initiative is a collaborative educational outreach program that serves area at-risk and underserved youth populations. The three primary objectives of this multi-faceted program are to:
- beautify community areas
- visually promote the clear benefit of arts in the community
- provide life-long positive impact on all project participants
The first Mural Art Project was initiated in the spring of 2008 as a collaboration between Tippecanoe Arts Federation, Cary Home for Children, and the City of Lafayette Parks Department. Since that time, the program has been successfully implemented in 8 counties throughout North Central Indiana adding over a dozen public pieces of art to the region.
The Tippecanoe Arts Federation recognizes the increasing value of public art in quality of life throughout North Central Indiana. To help increase awareness of the vast amount of public art that is located throughout the region, TAF has developed a Public Art Map where residents and visitors may view public art.
