Jean Mellblom lived in Lafayette for nearly 10 years in the 1990s. She brought the concept of publicly funded art to town. Jean was a persistent, feisty, and very friendly person –all of which helped her convince City officials that public art was necessary in Lafayette.
Because of her dedication and vision, the people’s choice award for Art on the Street is named the “Jean Mellblom” Award.
Jean Mellblom passed away in January of 2013. The Lafayette Public Art Committee would like to acknowledge that one of Jean Mellblom’s enduring legacies is the role she played in establishing Lafayette’s public art program. The Art on the Street People's Choice Award was named in her honor.
