Though “backwards” is a favorite adjective used to describe so many southern cities, when considering the home of the Kentucky Derby, Colonel Sanders, and a certain baseball bat, “forward” is a more appropriate characterization. Thanks to the efforts (and finances) of local philanthropists, Steve Wilson and Laura Lee Brown, the Louisville art scene is quickly becoming the talk of the national art world. In addition to exhibiting contemporary works of art from their own collection in their restaurant, Proof on Main, and their boutique hotel, 21C, the couple has now set out to create the most significant contribution to Louisville’s art scene and skyline in recent history. The Museum Plaza, a sixty-one story skyscraper to be constructed over the next few years, will house an enormous modern art museum as well as space for the Master of Fine Arts program at the University of Louisville’s Allen R. Hite Institute. This impressive edifice, designed by architect Joshua Prince-Ramus, will effectively solidify this section of Main St. in downtown Louisville as the heart of the art community, as it will exist in close proximity to the Speed Museum (Kentucky’s largest), the Kentucky Museum of Art Craft, and the Kentucky Center. In addition to all of these places to see, there is always much to do as the Louisville Visual Art Association sponsors numerous events throughout the year. Events such as Dinner Works and the Art Auction, which often feature the works of many area students, are among many of the opportunities provided for local residents to enjoy the talents of homegrown artists, as well as those of international acclaim. In fact, in a matter of a few years, this city will certainly be considered among the nation’s best for art attractions. Any art student will be sure to enjoy the excitement that so often surrounds a city on the rise.
