Louisville has an extraordinary artistic community. We need to better represent this to outsiders and enable more creative artistic input into civic projects and events.
Since I joined City Council, the City (under the leadership of the arts community) has developed and started implementing an Arts Master Plan. We need to continue to implement the vision. One of the most exciting opportunities that I have been able to support is our Arts Grant Program. We budget for and provide funding to our Cultural Council so that they can award grants to arts programs throughout the year. Many people know about the Cultural Council Thursday Concerts in the Park, but make sure you check out the incredible lineup of talent that they have brought to town for us all to enjoy!
