The LVAA can only arrange rental of this facility through September 30,
2012. Our landlord, Louisville Water, is making plans to renovate the
interior of the building for a permanent historical display, with work
scheduled to begin in October, 2012 and continue
through Spring, 2013. Since Louisville Water does not yet know if their
plans will allow for events inside the building after the renovation is
complete, there will be no rental arrangements for 2013 at this time.
The Water Tower is a 19th century historic landmark on the bank of the Ohio River. It is also the home of Louisville's leading contemporary art center, the Louisville Visual Art Association. A major monument of the Greek Revival style, the building with its 169-foot standpipe tower was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1971. The spacious facility provides an elegant setting for parties, wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, business meetings or an event of your own design.
