Mayor Greg Fischer this week announced “Connect/Disconnect,” a Louisville public art expo slated to begin late this summer.
The exhibition, a partnership with the Commission on Public Art, will seek to transform a site near the Ohio River through a series of interactive public art projects.
“Connect/Disconnect” will be located between east Portland and downtown Louisville along the Riverwalk/Louisville Loop, between 8th and 12th Streets, north of Rowan and Washington Streets, according to the mayor’s office.
This is the first project to come from Louisville Metro Government’s Public Art Initiative. It will launch in August and run through November.
The mayor’s office is also soliciting artists to submit their ideas on ways to “further activate the riverfront and enrich the visitor experience.” Artists can submit their proposals here.
