Last fall, Indiana artist Zach Medler ’01 teamed up with a fellow artist to spray paint a mural on the bridge pylons of the overpass for U.S. 52 at North River Road in Lafayette, Indiana – with the blessings of the Tippecanoe Arts Federation’s “Mural Arts Initiative.” The mural, inspired to blend the local area’s nature and industry roots, was finished in October 2012.
But wait – there’s more! Zach’s art extends way beyond a can of paint. He is a ceramicist and print maker and owns ZMed ceramics. Zach lives in West Lafayette with his wife, Mindy. He holds a masters of arts degree in ceramics from Purdue University, and is an elected member of the Indiana Artisan program. He exhibits his work throughout the Midwest and nationally, including at the Artist’s Own art co-op in downtown Lafayette, where you just might catch him working for a few hours each month.
Warning: Be prepared to lose yourself in Zach’s work once you start reading his blog, Facebook, and web site – it will be time well spent!
