Fleurs de Lafayette

Petronio and I designed a three color fleur-de-lis pattern for the crosswalks at the intersection of 10th and Main streets, downtown Lafayette. We chose the colors of yellow, orange, and white as cohesive colors that would combine well with street and caution signs (orange, white, and yellow signage, as well as existing road paint (yellow and white lines).

During the summer of 2015, we painted the approved design with help from community members. As of summer 2018, we have repainted them twice more, with a scaled down design.
