Annual Campaign for Arts-Louisville Inc

Want to join me in making a difference? become a Friend of Arts-Louisville Inc, now! has been busy publishing reviews and interviews about local arts groups in Louisville for the past eight years and has built a strong reputation as the media outlet with the most comprehensive critical coverage of the widest range of visual and performing arts available to a general audience.

When Actors Theatre of Louisville’s production of The Glory of the World moved to New York City, it was an Arts-Louisville review of the original production that was quoted in the publicity, and when Louisville Orchestra announced its 2016-17 season line-up, it twice quoted Arts-Louisville contributors’ assessment of previous performances. And Arts-Louisville became the Regional Editor for Broadway in 2015, positioning us to establish the only theatre awards in this region, with the sixth annual Arts-Louisville/Broadway World Theatre Awards scheduled for February 24, 2020.

$5000 will fund 50 reviews and articles, or approximately the first three months of 2020. In that period will cover six concerts from the Louisville Orchestra, two performances from Kentucky Opera, two from the Louisville Ballet, new productions from Stage One Family Theatre, Derby Dinner Playhouse, Pandora Productions, Bunbury Theatre, The Liminal Playhouse, CenterStage at JCC, Theatre [502], Clarksville Little Theatre, Little Colonel Playhouse, Commonwealth Theatre Center, The Bard’s Town, Looking for Lilith Theatre Company, Eve Theatre Company, the University of Louisville Theatre Arts Department, and the entirety of the Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre of Louisville.

Funding will also enable us to potentially expand our coverage of Visual Arts by attracting new writers so that we may review more of the exhibits at Galerie Hertz, Swanson Contemporary, garner narrative, Revelry Boutique & Gallery, Quappi Projects, Pyro Gallery, Craft(s) Gallery & Mercantile as well as the academic galleries at the University of Louisville’s Hite Institute and the Kentucky College of Art + Design, and Bellarmine University. The Visual Arts community desperately needs more attention.

Any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
