LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Could door knobs, driftwood and detergent be considered art? 

The answer for Louisville is, yes. They're all part of Metro Louisville's first Public Art Initiative, called "Connect/Disconnect." Nationally renowned artists worked with local artists and businesses to create five different exhibits.

It's part of Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer's plan to create a nationally recognized art program. The exhibits include things like driftwood and objects found in the river.

"Each work of art is inspired by something unique to Louisville and tells a story about our city as well," Fischer said Friday.

You can see them at what will become Phase 4 of Waterfront Park between 9th Street and 15th Street.
