Louisville – Councilwoman Attica Scott is putting out the call to all local artists who are interested in helping create public art in two areas of Metro Louisville. If they are interested, there is an important workshop coming up to help them get involved.
"We are looking for a few good artists to work collaboratively with youth and adults in two neighborhoods in District 1 to create mural projects that reflect the culture and heritage of both areas," says Scott.
The Councilwoman and The Center for Neighborhoods are partnering to sponsor three P.A.I.N.T. (Producing Art in Neighborhoods Together) Projects for the Parkland and Chickasaw areas.
The special workshop is set for Saturday, February 15th at the Catholic Enrichment Center, 3146 West Broadway from 10:00am to 12:00pm. The locations for the three projects will be announced at the workshop.
Artists who attend will get a chance to talk with residents of the area to learn more about these communities and get a sense of how to develop a winning project proposal. They will learn the specifics of how the three P.A.I.N.T. projects will proceed and the proposed time line from start to finish.
Then the artists will have the chance to submit a letter of intent to develop any of the three projects.
"I am honored to partner with Councilwoman Cheri Bryant Hamilton on the public art project in Chickasaw because we both serve the neighborhood."
Artists who are interest in the work shop must RSVP by Thursday, February 13th. They should RSVP to Lisa Dettlinger by calling 502-589-0343 or email Lisa at email@example.com
