The Future Is Now

The Future is Now is mentorship program that matches JCPS high school students with professional local artists in Louisville, Kentucky. This summer we are excited to be partnering with The Kentucky College of Art + Design at Spalding University to bring The Future Is Now back for Summer 2016! 

The application period for summer 2016 is now closed.

In 2015, for half a year, each team worked towards creating individual and collaborative pieces for an exhibition in the Green Building Gallery. Along the way, the gallery and mentors taught the students about new artistic processes, portfolio building, exhibition design, installation, marketing, and what it takes to be a professional artist. Their journey culminated in the gallery where they experienced curatorial practices by participating in exhibition lay-out and installation, plus promotion and hosting the opening reception.
