The Cultural Pass provides free access to many of Greater Louisville’s arts and cultural institutions for children of Metro Louisville. The Pass is valid for one-time general admission at each of the participating institutions and is valid from June 3 to August 12. Created from Vision Louisville, the Cultural Pass is an innovative initiative to promote art and culture and improve summer learning in our community. The 2017 Cultural Pass is presented by Churchill Downs, in partnership with Metro Louisville, Fund for the Arts, Arts and Culture Alliance and the Louisville Free Public Library. More than 150,000 passes have been issued since its inception in 2014.
The Vision of the Cultural Pass:
A Cultural Pass for children of all ages that supports and encourages life-long learning by providing access to Louisville’s art and cultural institutions.
The 2017 Cultural Pass is daily managed by the Fund for the Arts and overseen by a Coordinating Committee, comprised of representatives from the Mayor’s Office, Arts and Culture Alliance, Louisville Free Public Library and the Fund for the Arts. The Education/Collaboration Committee of the ACA serves as an advisory committee providing feedback, ideas and suggestions.
The 2017 Cultural Pass is available starting May 22, 2017 and may be picked up at any Louisville Free Public Library branch along with the Summer Reading Program. Pass holders can register and track the progress of your Cultural Pass online at www.lfpl.org/culturalpass. The official Cultural Pass Launch Day will be on June 3 at the Main Branch of the Louisville Free Public Library and all participating venues will be invited to participate. Pass holders are encouraged to visit as many venues as you are able. T-shirts will be provided to those children that visit five or more venues. To receive t-shirts, participants must have their Cultural Pass stamped by each venue visited, and bring the stamped pass to the Cultural Pass closing party – location and day TBD. Pass holders that visit the most venues will be entered into a drawing for tickets, season passes and other prizes provided by members of the Arts and Culture Alliance.
