LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Five public art projects along Main Street in Lafayette will get a boost from state funding.

The city has been chosen as one of 11 recipients of money from the Place Based Investment Fund. The (Lafayette) Courier and Journal reports (https://on.jconline.com/1eo13FG ) that the city asked for $50,000 to pay for the art projects. The city had to raise $75,000 in order to ask for that level of funding and surpassed that mark by $20,000.

The five projects include a Georges Seurat-inspired mural, performance-art mural, a sculpture, wo curbside concrete foundations that will hold pieces of public art and public art at crosswalks on 10th and Main streets.
