Connect|Disconnect: A Public Art Experience

About the Project

   

Connect|Disconnect: A Public Art Experience is an exciting project designed to activate our urban space along the Ohio River and promote the understanding and enjoyment of public art in Louisville. Using a portion of our Louisville Loop as a temporary art walk, nationally-renowned artists have transformed this space for Louisville’s inaugural public art exhibition. The art installations are unique to Louisville and were created to tell our story, with raw materials and visual reminders of our past, present and future.

Connect|Disconnect is presented by the Mayor’s Office and Louisville Forward, in partnership with the Louisville Commission on Public Art. Please visit louisvilleky.gov/connectdisconnect to learn more.

Funds raised through the power2give campaign will support exhibition programming in October and November 2015. Free, engaging, family-friendly programs within our public space will serve visitors of all ages and from all areas of Louisville. #ArtIs for all of us!

Connect|Disconnect programs will focus on:

  • Exploring engineering concepts through public art installations such as Mark Reigelman’s Upriver/Downriver and SIMPARCH’s River Monument (glomns)

     

  • Adventures at the intersection of art and science with Jenny Kendler’s Field of Vision: A Garden for Others and Jean Shin’s Anthropocene Fossils

     

  • The River’s stories, based on Beneath the Surface by Mary Carothers

     

Connect|Disconnect: A Public Art Experience is free and open to the public from August 28-November 30, along the Louisville Loop and the Ohio River, between 8th and 12th Streets. Follow us on Facebook, Louisville Metro Public Art, and Instagram, @loumetropublicart, to see more photos of the exhibition artwork and events!

Support the exhibition and related programs today! Thank you for helping to provide arts programming in Louisville.
