Louisville Visual Art has been improving lives through visual art education, community outreach, and artist support since 1909.

As a creative hub now established in the Portland neighborhood, LVA is dedicated to encouraging artists through programming such as Children’s Fine Art Classes, MAP, Artebella, Open Studio Weekend, outreach programs and weekly calls for artists.

LVA is shaping the next generation of creative leaders by providing quality instruction to 1,000+ students annually through Children's Fine Art Classes and outreach programs in schools and community centers. LVA aims to engage, inspire, and improve our region through art.    

LVA is committed to fulfilling the objectives outlined in the Imagine Greater Louisville 2020 Cultural Plan. To support a full creative life for all, LVA with the Imagine Greater Louisville Steering Committee commits to championing policies and practices of cultural equity that empower a just, inclusive and equitable society where people from every segment of our community have access and opportunity to learn, work, and play.
