City Art Collection
While the city's art collection dates to the turn of the 20th century, current public art initiatives were shaped by the Public Art Master Plan in 2009 and the Vision Louisville plan in 2013. Vision Louisville's goal of Creativity Out of Diversity included cultivation of new public arts programs across the city and strategies for public art accessible to all communities.
The city's art collection includes local and national artists and cultural landmarks built over decades. Louisville's public art is found at sites such as libraries, parks, public buildings, and streetscapes, enhancing our shared public spaces throughout the city.
