Fund for the Arts strives to make Greater Louisville a competitive 21st century community by investing in innovative programming that brings national acclaim, exciting performances and exhibitions to traditional and non-traditional spaces in every corner of our community.
We believe the arts fuel our regional economy, inspire student success, bring people together and simply make Louisville an amazing, unique city.

Schools & Community Centers

Fund for the Arts provides curriculum-based arts education programs to schools and community centers across the region, expanding access to the arts for all students.


Fund for the Arts supports world-class institutions that bring national acclaim, exciting performances and exhibits to every corner of our community.


Fund for the Arts invests in artists and arts leaders to hone their craft and contribute to the creative foundation of our community.

Culinary Initiative Relief Fund

In partnership with Ashbourne Farms and through the generous support of Austin & Janie Musselman, Fund for the Arts Culinary Initiative is launching a Strategic Relief Fund in response to the economic fallout from COVID-19. The Fund will focus support on two objectives: 1) supporting the basic needs of our culinary artists community, and 2) providing relief funds to culinary institutions that have been a pillar to our community.
