Local artist allows everyone to paint on LSU mural

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

When you think about LSU tailgating, you wouldn't be thinking about paint. Well, you haven't heard of the "JZUMO" tailgating experience. Artist Jacob Zumo set up his canvas and allowed the entire campus of LSU to show off their artistic side.

"We want to make a real big event and bring art back to Baton Rouge and create a culture where everyone can be involved in, "said Zumo.

Zumo started painting 2 years ago after suffering from an injury while playing college basketball. Now, he wants to allow his hometown a chance to paint with him. Several students came out and started painting on what he calls "The Art of Winning" mural. You can paint anything you want; he just wants you to embrace your artistic side.

"I live breath and eat art, so it's a daily battle a daily love that I do, "said Zumo.  

Zumo looks to keep this artwork a tradition for a long time.
