The Tippecanoe Arts Federation provides opportunities for regional artists to display their work at the Wells Community Cultural Center in downtown Lafayette. Originally built as a memorial library in 1926, the Wells Community Cultural Center features three galleries that showcase a broad range of talents and media.

Exhibitions at the Wells Community Cultural Center are selected through a juried process. The building which acts as a hub for the arts in Greater Lafayette also serves as venue for regional, contemporary art embedded in a multidisciplinary, accessible, and community-driven space.
