The City of Crown Point is pleased to announce the unveiling of its public art project: “Walk the Dog.”
“Walk the Dog” is a project by the City of Crown Point and Chicago-based artist and Crown Point native Lewis Lain. “Walk the Dog” is a multi-faceted project anchored by a 4-foot-tall fiberglass bulldog painted to illustrate Crown Point’s rich history. The project includes a coloring book and a historic walking tour with signage, both of which depict the historic sites showcased on the bulldog.
The Crown Point Community Library provided the historical research for this project, which was funded by the Indiana Destination Development Corporation and the Crown Point Redevelopment Commission.
The City hosted an unveiling for the project from 5-7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 18, at Bulldog Park, located at 183 S. West St. Remarks were made from project partners, and the unveiling of the project with light refreshments.
Special thanks goes to the Werkowski family for making this project a reality and the Stewards of the Square, who inspired many with the original Best in Show Exhibit featuring dozens of bulldogs across Crown Point. Crown Point’s Website is www.crownpoint.in.gov
