Banana paint job on house near Purdue under review

WEST LAFAYETTE — A rental property near Purdue University has a new look with a large yellow banana painted along the entire length of the two-story house.

West Lafayette city officials are now trying to decide whether the paint job is OK or should be considered a sign since the rental company that owns the house uses a banana as its logo.

Granite Management manager Joel Brovont tells the Journal & Courier said the mural isn't intended as an advertisement and that the company's name won't be included. He says the house needed repainting, so the company decided to get creative.

The house is now mostly gray, with the banana's stem starting near the roof's peak at the front of the house and the banana image wrapping around to the side.
