It's a weekend of free events! Head to downtown Lafayette, and check out the new exhibition "On or About: Rockwell Kent" at the Fountain Gallery. Featuring a highlight of the Purdue Galleries collection, “Generator of Jobs,” a painting by American artist Rockwell Kent, this exhibit positions the work as a source of inspiration/discussion along side the works of local, regional, and national contemporary artists.
