The Arts Federation (TAF) is currently seeking exhibition proposals from regional artists. The deadline to submit the online application is March 31. TAF provides opportunities for regional artists to display their work at the Wells Community Cultural Center, which is located at 638 North Street in downtown Lafayette. Originally built as a memorial library in 1926, the facility has been renovated to feature three galleries that showcase a broad range of talents and media.
All artists, groups of artists, organizations, and schools from north central Indiana can apply!
In an effort to bring new artwork into the galleries, artwork must not have been previously shown at the Wells Community Cultural Center. Artists who have shown here in the last 3 years must submit a portfolio containing at least 80% new work at the time of application.
Emerging artists or artists who have not yet exhibited at TAF are encouraged to submit an application and may ask for an application review in advance of the deadline.
ABOUT THE WELLS COMMUNITY CULTURAL CENTER & GALLERIES
The Historic Wells Community Cultural Center is owned and operated by The Arts Federation. Located at the heart of the Greater Lafayette Community at 638 North Street, the building serves as an anchor facility for the state-designated Tippecanoe Arts & Cultural District.
A gift from Dr. Albert Wells to the City of Lafayette in 1926, this building served for many years as the main branch of the Tippecanoe County Public Library. Presently featuring three galleries, the Wells Community Cultural Center is now a hub of art resources and opportunities for the Greater Lafayette Community. In addition to exhibition space, the Wells Building serves as multi-use cultural facility providing area artists and arts organizations with performance, rehearsal, meeting, and storage space.
The purpose of the TAF Galleries is to provide opportunities for artists from north central Indiana to display their original artwork. Art for the galleries is selected through a juried process.
