Volunteers add art to vacant, abandoned buildings

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) -  Vacant and abandoned properties can be a real eyesore in a neighborhood.

Saturday morning volunteers used art to make them look a whole lot better.

Metro Code and Regulations Works Department launched a new project called Blight Out, Brighten Up.

Volunteers painted bright, colorful and abstract designs on plywood boards which will be used to board up vacant properties.

Over 100 college students and volunteers took part in the event.
