(La Porte, IN) - More art work is on display in La Porte thanks to art students from La Porte High School. The park department provided 55 gallon size garbage cans to the students who painted
different designs on the metal cans.
Park Department Superintendent Mark Schreiber said the first cans painted by the art students were first placed at Unity Park at Pine Lake several years ago. “It’s just great first of all to have any type of art in the parks. I think it just really brightens things up and draws people in,” he said.
Schreiber said the work also gives the students a sense of community. The new painted cans are going in at Soldiers Memorial Park.
