Group to develop master plan for public art in Louisville

The group responsible for the Tribute in Light that shines every September 11th where the twin towers once stood will soon develop a master plan for public art in Louisville.

Mayor Abramson told reporters Tuesday morning the city would pay $50,000 to New York-based Creative Time for its recommendations.

The group will be charged with coming up with ideas and places for expanding public art in Louisville.  Abramson says, "Public art is art for everyone.  Art and economic development are often hand in hand.  Look no further than 21c, or the flourishing East Market district or the gallory hops to know that art is about who we are as a city." 

The mayor says the funding for the plan came from money set aside in budgets over the past several years.  Recommendations from the group are expected next fall.
