Althea Jackson: A Tribute from LVA

To look at her, you would not believe she is ready to retire - yet on August 31, Althea Jackson will spend her last day on the job at Louisville Metro Hall. For 27 years, she has worked for Metro Government, mostly in the Mayor’s Office. Her duties over that enviable length of service were far-ranging, but her experience as the key arts & culture contact for three mayors was the foundation of her outstanding reputation and where her legacy will rest. During the current administration, she helped bring exhibits into Metro Hall representing Louisville Visual Art, the University of Louisville, the Frazier Museum and the Speed Museum. In addition, Althea hosted "Metro Matters," a weekly radio show on 1350 WLOU and 104.7 FM that was an essential vehicle for outreach in the community. Althea served on the board of directors for Louisville Visual Art for several years, and all at LVA are sad to see her go ... but excited at what adventures lie ahead. LVA congratulates her on such distinguished service to our community!
