Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Hundreds of artists are transforming Old Louisville into an event attracting crowds from across the country.

The St. James Court Art Show starts Friday.

More than 700 artists spent Thursday pitching their tents that line the streets of Old Louisville. They're unloading artwork including everything from paintings to hand-hammered silverware.

It's the 60th year for the event, that keeps artists and fans coming back each year.

"This is a very good show," said Ben Caldwell, an artist from Nashville. "It's well attended with art collectors from all over the Midwest who buy my work, and I've done well whenever I come here."

The art show runs tomorrow through Sunday.

TARC is offering free shuttles from the Galt House and the Brown Hotel garage to the show.
