With the Oaks and the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby behind us, we are off and racing toward summer and the close of our 2014 Fund for the Arts Campaign!  Last week I visited with the folks at Jeffboat on the sunny side of Louisville.  We have been sharing stories and inspiring one another!  I just found out my friend at Jeffboat, Gerald Washington, played the violin at Kammerer Middle School.  Why, even our Kentucky Oaks and Derby winners had inspiring stories! What stories do you share to inspire each other?  We want to hear them!

And while I wait for your to email, take a moment to watch our latest ArtSTORY.  From gospel to opera, from Webber to Shakespeare – Gregory Rahming has done it all.  We are so glad he is making his home in Louisville AND making an impact on the youth in our community!
