Art on the Street

Lafayette's annual sculpture on loan program is a community favorite and so is See & Respond!, an annual exhibit inviting community members of all ages to respond to the year's Art on the Street sculptures through 2-D Art, Photography, or Poetry.

See & Respond 2021 Call for 2-D art, photography, and poetry is now open! Deadline for submissions is Tuesday, Sept. 7, 2021.

The Call for Entries for Art on the Street 2022 will open in August 2021.

City Gallery Walls

The Lafayette Arts & Cultural Resources Department schedules artists and arts organizations to display their work on city gallery walls for 2-month long exhibitions. The City of Lafayette has three facilities with beautiful gallery walls to display artwork on a rotating basis: Senior Center; City Hall; and the Lafayette Public Library.
This program has been on hold due to the COVID 19 health crisis. Check back mid-summer 2021 for updated information.
