21C Hotel showcases six 30-foot-tall inflatable monkeys

Take chances and think outside the box -- that's the challenge organizers of the annual Idea Festival are making again to Louisville.

Main Street's 21C Hotel has responded by installing six 30-foot high inflatable monkeys, the latest work of New York artist Stefan Sagmeister.

21C wanted something dramatic to greet Ryder Cup and Idea Fest visitors later this month.

The Idea Fest will provide three days of events and talks by innovative people beginning September 25th.  It started in 2000 in Lexington and is staying put after moving to Louisville two years ago.

Idea Fest founder Kris Kimmel says he tries to offer a variety of free and lower-cost events so people from all walks of life can participate.
