Proceeds will go toward helping the Lafayette Farmers and Artisans Market at the Horse Farm
LAFAYETTE, LA (KADN) — Local art students donated their time and talents to give back to the community in Lafayette, and tomorrow you can see the amazing work they've done at the Farmer's Market at the Horse Farm. Over the last two months fifty students ranging in age from three to eighteen spent countless hours painting Louisiana themes on one-hundred year old antique windows. This was all in an effort to raise money for the Lafayette Farmers and Artisans market at the Horse Farm.
"It's everyone's park, it's everyone's market and so for these students to really take ownership of the future of their city is an amazing thing to see," says Molly Richard, market manager of Lafayette Farmers Market at the Horse Farm.
"They were able to give something back to the community which is something they were excited about. I think they were more excited than I was!" Harriet LaHaye Hebert is the private art teacher that had the idea for her students.
The windows will be auctioned off in a silent auction at the Farmer's Market tomorrow from 8 am until noon. The young artists will be honored as bell ringers at the Horse Farm to officially open the weekly market at 8. If you're out of town and can't make it tomorrow you will be able to call in and place a bid on the pieces. There will be a facebook album of the auction items as well as their item number. The number you can call is (337) 654-9234.
