Louisville Visual Art nurtures local artists throughout their creative lifecycles, strengthening Louisville’s entire arts ecosystem.
LVA offers OST education and other art-centered programs for youth at 35-40 locations annually: in-school programs at 15-20 schools and sites. These include JCPS schools, private and parochial schools, colleges/universities, community centers, churches, partner non-profits, and more.
Adult programs occur almost entirely off-site, engaging close to 100 locations each year. These include artists’ studios, public mural sites, exhibition venues such as Metro Hall, AC Hotel, the Humana Building, and 21C Hotel, Art Sanctuary, the UofL Cressman Center, the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage, and many others.
LVA serves close to 10,000 people each year with directly countable participation. When public artworks and online/broadcast engagement are factored in, the number is well over 100,000.
LVA Youth Education serves approximately 3000 students in grades 4-12 each year. The balance of participation with our programs includes all ages, with rapid growth among 22-35-year-olds.
