FUND FOR THE ARTS AND METRO UNVEIL “ARTS IN 3D” PROGRAM
Year-long Collaboration to Bring Enriching Arts Experiences to District 3
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Sept. 14, 2019) – The Fund for the Arts and District 3 Metro Councilwoman Keisha Dorsey proudly announced today their “Arts in 3D” program, a year-long integration project dedicated to bringing more arts and cultural experiences to District 3. The communities that will benefit from this collaboration include Algonquin, California, Hallmark, Park Duvalle, Parkland, Park Hill, and the City of Shively.
The project was revealed with a community arts event hosted at Algonquin Park. Christen Boone, president and CEO of the Fund for the Arts, and Councilwoman Dorsey discussed the program’s impact, while attendees enjoyed entertainment by local performing artists and a showcase of local talent.
Arts in 3D’s five components are dedicated to enriching the lives of District 3 residents through inspiring arts and cultural experiences. They align with the Fund for the Art’s commitment to bringing access, opportunity, and equity to every corner of the city.
The components include:
• “School’s Out = Art’s In” brings students weekly opportunities to participate in workshops led by dance companies, resident artists, and more.
• “In School Arts” ensures that students receive educational art experiences while in school through artist visits and field trips.
• “ArtsWise” connects residents 55 and older with regular art events and shows.
• “Public Art Experiences” highlights musical and dance performances and mural painting.
• “Ticket Bank” provides district residents with free tickets to select performing arts shows.
“We are thrilled to partner with Councilwoman Dorsey to foster stronger, more vibrant, and more compassionate communities in our city,” said Boone. “Arts in 3D would not be possible without her generosity and dedication to creating impactful changes in Louisville.”
Councilwoman Dorsey explains, “I was not elected to maintain the status quo. I was elected to make visible and meaningful changes. This partnership adds to the vibrancy of this diverse and engaged community.”
