UK students paint Town Branch into Lexington public memory.

Lexington has a creek running through downtown, though you would never discover it if you walk the city's streets. Town Branch Creek, part of the South Elkhorn Creek, has long been buried underground. In 2010, several geography students at UK attempted to bring Town Branch into the space of public memory through an art project downtown.
