LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's a celebration of the arts in Louisville.
Performers helped kick off the 2014 Fund for the Arts campaign Tuesday morning.
School groups, community leaders and others attend this free event each year to kick off the fundraising campaign.
"We want to raise an excess of $8 million in support of the great arts in Louisville," said Jim Allen, chairman of the board at the Fund for the Arts. "We're blessed to have a broad menu of arts options. In addition, we've been supportive of education to support the overall needs of the art community."
Fund for the Arts is the oldest united arts fund in the country. It has generated more than $188 million since it was established in 1949.
