East Main and Ingraham Intersection Art Project Gets A Makeover
Lakeland, FL – The faded color scheme at the intersection art project located at E. Main Street and Ingraham Avenue has been replaced with a vibrant much more durable paint. The intersection makeover project occurred on Sunday, January 13, 2019.
Angelo Rao, Manager of Traffic Operations and Parking Services said, “Our plan is to have the intersection painted by hand using rollers. A clear coat will then be applied to reduce fading and it will help protect the paint from tire marks.” He added, “The new paint may not match the existing colors exactly but they will be very similar and the finished project will look great. I want to thank Steven Mitchell and his team at Angco Striping for donating their services at no charge to the City!
The Lakeland CRA originally spearheaded the intersection project two years ago as a way to introduce additional art in public spaces and to support the identity of the East Main District.
Street murals are a creative way to help neighborhoods foster a sense of identity and community pride.
