St. James Court Art Show
The St. James Court Art Show happens every year rain or shine, and it’s happening in Old Louisville. Each one of the custom homes in Old Louisville is like a work of art itself. Most of the houses here date to the late 1800s and early 1900s, and they are a marvel of Victorian design. That means you’ll see mosaic designs, hand-wrought iron work, custom stonework and so many towers, balconies and landscaping you won’t know where to look next.
And that’s not even the art that’s on display at the show! More than 700 artists from around the country will be at the art show, which takes up four blocks. You can browse among dozens and dozens of different booths to see everything from jewelry to paintings to sculpture to crafts. Be at the show from 10 am to 5 pm, and give yourself plenty of time to see everything. St. James Court is at 1387 S. 4th Street, and the Art Show is all around it.
The beautiful St. James Court is famous for the fountain at the heart of the court. This is one of several courts you'll find in Old Louisville. After you browse the art at the show, browse the real estate in this neighborhood. It takes most people about 5 minutes before they start thinking about living here.
