Alley Art Amazin'
Do you want to spruce up your alley-facing outbuilding or fence? Are you tired of having your alley walls graffitied?
Well, here's our solution--LOTA's new Alley Art Amazin' program!
Marissa Perry Saints, an Old Town resident and artist, created Lafayette's first official Alley Art on her garage door. Check it out in person at 205 W. Emma St.! Together, Marissa and John Weise, another Old Town resident, will be coordinating this program.
Marissa created a slide show about her mural project (see photos at left) that you can watch here:

BASICS ABOUT ALLEY ART AMAZIN':
Who Makes the Art?
You do, with the guidance and support of LOTA, and particularly that of Alley Art Amazin' Artistic Director Marissa Saints.
Homeowners in Old Town Lafayette are eligible.
April through September --you choose your own timing.
We'll be holding a gala alley art walk and party to show off the finished work on about October 1.
Participants will also receive plaques to commemorate their participation in this hip Lafayette project.
We'll help you with ideas, including some visual references to help you get your creative juices flowing.
We'll also help you find paint and are looking into the possibilities of providing homeowners who participate with some financial support.
We may even be able to get you some volunteer help to complete your project.
