 Project Front Yard

Rain Barrel Public Art Project
In an effort to promote a more beautiful Lafayette, Project Front Yard partnered with Lafayette Utilities System and asked local high schools to participate in public art contest using rain barrels.
These painted rain barrels are being used help educate the public about water conservation and storm water management of the Bayou Vermilion Watershed.  Rain barrels are containers that are used to collect and store rainwater from rooftops. The water collected is used later for watering your lawn, garden or for other outdoor uses. For more information on rain barrels, please visit www.lus.org.
The votes have been tallied and the winners of the Art Contest have been chosen.
Community Choice: 1st Place – Saint Thomas More

Community Choice: 2nd Place – Lafayette High

Community Choice: 3rd Place – Lafayette High Community & Vocational Class

Mayor’s Choice – Saint Thomas More

Congratulations to the winners as well as everyone who participated! Every rain barrel submitted had such unique and creative elements that set each in its own distinct category, making it a very difficult choice for the voters to choose one over the other. You are all winners in our yard!​
