Our Lady of Peace Hosts Louisvillians Who Lead Art Exhibit
Our Lady of Peace will host an art exhibit on Thursday, Feb. 18 featuring adolescent patients’ paintings of Louisville community leaders. The project, called Louisvillians Who Lead, was designed to encourage adolescent patients at the facility to imagine themselves ascending to similarly vital roles. The exhibit will feature eight signature paintings of Louisville community leaders and is a partnership with the Louisville Visual Arts Association. Four community leaders who are featured will be in attendance.
Patients interviewed and photographed the community leaders, and then created portraits from the photographs. Louisvillians Who Lead is inspired by internationally recognized artist Robert Shetterly’s Americans Who Tell the Truth exhibit.
The Louisville Visual Arts Association and the Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s Foundation made the project possible.
