Call for Artists: Applications open for the fourth annual Art in City Hall exhibition

November 01, 2021

Artists must submit applications online by November 12

Louisville – Louisville Metro Council and the city’s Commission on Public Art (COPA) are searching for new artwork to proudly display in City Hall as part of the fourth annual Art in City Hall exhibition.

The annual program, which is administered by Louisville Forward, invites artists to submit original, two-dimensional works of art through an online application process by November 12. The submissions will be reviewed by a Selection Committee comprised of Metro Council and COPA representatives.

“Art in City Hall is a wonderful program that reflects the great and diverse artistic talent that we have in this city. I would encourage local artists to submit their work so that it can be on display for everyone to see walking through City Hall,” said Councilman Mark Fox (D-13), who is part of the Selection Committee.

Up to six artists will be selected for the exhibition. The chosen artwork will be on display for one year in City Hall’s entrance lobby, hallways, and public spaces.

Each artist selected to participate in the exhibition will receive a $500 honorarium.
