88 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 3.17 Special Advertising Section LVA: Using Art to Transform Lives and Enrich Neighborhoods Louisville Visual Art has been improving lives through visual art education, community outreach and artist support for over 100 years. As a creative hub now established in the Portland neighborhood, LVA is dedicated to engaging and encouraging artists through programming such as Artebella, Open Studio Weekend and weekly calls for artists. Most recently, LVA has been developing the Mural Art Program to beautify and inspire the city, raise awareness of art within the community and directly support local artists. Louisville Visual Art develops the next generation of creative leaders by providing intensive art experiences to over 1,250 students each year through the Children's Fine Art Classes (CFAC) program, The Academy of LVA, as well as its innovative summer camp program. The Open Doors program works with more than 2,000 participants each year from underserved populations by bringing art-enrichment experiences and classes to at-risk youth, refugees, immigrants, victims of abuse and more. Projects are tailored to meet specific needs of each population and serve to enrich not only the individual participants, but the community as a whole. Louisville Visual Art aims to engage, inspire and improve our community through the arts. Mark your calendar for the LVA art[squared] event as over 200 artists anonymously sell 8''x8'' artwork to support the CFAC program in LVA's Portland home this April 7th, 2017.
