Commission on Public Art

Louisville is a vibrant city, full of interesting neighborhoods and colorful storefronts, adorned with public art and a growing number of independent galleries and art spaces.

In order to better serve our local artist community and develop a plan for creating more public art in our community, an advisory team was named to develop new public art projects (temporary and permanent); set public art policy and planning; and conserve the city's public art collection.

This advisory team is the Commission on Public Art (COPA), formerly the Mayor’s Advisory Committee On Public Art.

Established in 2010, the Commission is committed to overseeing the implementation and evolution of the Louisville Public Art Master Plan. To have a profound reach, Louisville's public art program must contribute to the legacy of visual art locally, nationally and internationally. To fulfill its mission, COPA advocates for art in spaces accessible to the public, promotes visual art in these spaces, and conserves existing public art.

COPA holds public meetings the first Tuesday of every other month. Meetings are at 10 a.m., in the Metro Development Center, 1st floor, 444 S. 5th Street.
