Historic neon sign replica installed at The Collective
December marked the latest historic pursuit in Old Town with the installation of an updated version of an iconic neon sign that once hung at 201 N. Public Road. Efforts to further recapture the full impact of the building’s historic façade by incorporating a replica of the “Coors on Tap” neon sign came to fruition this winter. The Lafayette Urban Renewal Authority commissioned the reproduction sign with a twist, one that incorporated the words “Arts on Tap” to creatively promote the new community arts center.
The Collective Community Arts Center blends the City's commitment to honoring Lafayette's past while moving into the future. The Collective houses the Arts and Cultural Resources Department.
At The Collective, visitors engage in the arts through various exhibits, historic displays, networking opportunities, arts business development, social themes, lectures, film series, and other arts & culture programs. Visitors come together to express and celebrate the community's identity through art.
