The Art Scene in Old Louisville
Old Louisville is centered around Central Park. The park and the neighborhood around it is a perfect setting for any art lover. Old Louisville is full of Victorian homes dating to the days when the city was new. There's a huge selection of architecture from the 19th century here, and many homes that are from the turn of the century.
Despite the name of this Louisville neighborhood and all the hundred-year-old homes you'll find here, Old Louisville has a very youthful spirit. The campus is nearby, and the people here are active about their community involvement. Old Louisville hosts several events through the year that art lovers of all types will enjoy. SpringFest and the Hidden Treasures Garden Tour showcase the beauty of Old Louisville. The St. James Court Art Show is world-famous for having amazing art. And don't forgive theatrical and musical art, like Old Louisville's Kentucky Shakespeare Festival and the Blues Festival.
