Sixth Annual Art in City Hall Exhibition and Reception

February 13, 2024

Louisville (February 13, 2024) – The Louisville Metro Council, City’s Commission on Public Art (COPA), and Louisville Visual Art (LVA) have selected five artists for the Sixth Annual Art in City Hall Exhibition.

The exhibition will be displayed in historic City Hall, located at 601 W. Jefferson Street. Visitors may enter from the 6th Street entrance.

This annual program is a collaboration between Metro Council, COPA and LVA. Earlier this year, there was an open call for artists to submit original works of art through an online application process. Ninety art submissions were received and reviewed by a selection committee.

The artists selected are Brian Bailey, Adam Barmore, Uhma Janus, Humberto Lahera, and Barry Motes, and each will receive a $500 honorarium.

The artist’s themes include:

  • Brian Bailey – rural Kentucky landscapes
  • Adam Barmore – Louisville landmarks
  • Uhma Janus – abstract
  • Humberto Lahera – thoroughbred horses
  • Barry Motes – Louisville and Kentucky still life

The art will be available for viewing and purchase during normal business hours, Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The art will be displayed in the main entrance lobby, hallways, and public spaces through January 2025.

The Metro Council will host a public artist’s reception on Thursday, February 15, at 3:00 p.m. in the first-floor conference room of historic City Hall. Light refreshments will be provided.

During the reception, artists will be available to answer questions about their artwork. The media is invited and encouraged to attend.
