Picture This . . .
A city where the quality of life and the quality of art are equally accessible. A place where there are more art galleries than you can shake a paintbrush at. That was voted home to the best art show in the country. And where one of the world’s top-six hotels is . . . an art gallery. That’s Possibility City, my friend. And finding these places couldn’t be any easier.
Unless of course it could. . . .
Finding Art in Louisville
Click here to open a Google map of the many wonderful and diverse places in Louisville you can find art.
Better yet, we want you to add your own links — galleries you love, artists you admire, artwork you’ve discovered. Could be a friend’s framing shop, an art-education program, a favorite photographer, an art installation or statue, the Speed Museum or one of the galleries around Nulu or Frankfort Avenue. It’s your map. It’s your art. Own it.

The Art of Boxing?
The Muhammad Ali Center has work by internationally acclaimed artists such as LeRoy Neiman and Howard L. Bingham. So this year’s “Dream makers” artist-in-residence should feel right at home. Hailing from Cuba, Carlos Gamez de Francisco arrived in America less than a year ago. If you visit the Center, you can not only watch him work in the Center’s open studio, but actually meet him in person.
Of course, if you’re more into the art of walking, you could also head to PYRO Gallery, owned by internationally respected poster artist Julius Friedman, to see more of de Francisco’s work.
You could call it yet another illustration of how attractive Louisville is in drawing the arts.
