Louisville – For a second year, Louisville Metro’s Historic City Hall will once again be a place to see the works of local artists as the call goes out for the Second Annual Art in City Hall Exhibit.

“This program has caught the attention of many visitors to City Hall over the last year. Art in City Hall is an opportunity to showcase the wide array of visual talent we have here in Metro Louisville,” says President David James (D-6). “I want to encourage local artists to apply for this year’s exhibit. There are many people who come through our building and get an opportunity to experience the creativity of so many people in our city.”

“Art in City Hall” works in partnership with the Commission on Public Art to use the public lobby areas and hallways of all three floors in Historic City Hall as a display area to showcase visual arts.

“Art in City Hall is designed to showcase the work of Louisville artists, and to encourage dialogue and enjoyment of visual art in a public space,” said Sarah Lindgren, Public Art Administrator for Louisville Metro Government.

The opportunity is open to all artists of any race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, nationality or disability working in Louisville/Jefferson County.  Interested artists should submit an application online at https://louisvilleky.gov/government/public-art. There is no entry fee.

Each artist selected to exhibit their work will receive a $500 honorarium. The Art in City Hall exhibit will take place over October 2019 to September 2020.

The deadline for submitting works of art is September 8th.

The finalists will be announced in October 2019.
