The warm spring weather has reinvigorated our mural painting at the California Community Center! Friends and family joined us on Saturday to help paint accents and trim and we're making steady progress! Thanks to our friends at Louisville Metro Parks and Recreation, Fund for the Arts, and all the folks from the neighborhood who have stopped by with encouraging words!

California Community Center: May 2018 Update

Some of LVA's finest employees and friends - Outreach Programs Manager Ehren Reed, teacher Janet Britt and artist Victor Sweatt - have been working hard all spring on giving the nearby  California Community Center  a fresh coat of love (in mural form!). Special thanks to our partners at Louisville Metro Parks and Recreation, and to the Fund for the Arts and the Center for Neighborhoods for their generous support on this project.
