Veterans Support fund Drive

As part of a Veterans Day event at Louisville Free Public Library Southwest (9725 Dixie Highway), at 2pm Saturday November 11th, local musician Kelly Newton will be performing and releasing her debut album Lady Liberty.

We will also be on hand collecting donations for a project to support the Deported Veterans Support House in Tijuana Mexico. The Support House (affectionately known as The Bunker) is an organization to help U.S. Military Veterans deported to Mexico after their term of service has ended.
Due to Mexican regulations it is difficult to receive monetary donations from the U.S. but is much easier to receive physical goods.

There for we have put together these portable Winter First Aide Packs, available for just $7 and for every one ordered on our website, we will send one to The Bunker. Makes a good holiday gift for your friends and family, and directly helps a great cause.

Open Call for Muralists

We are taking proposals from muralists for the upcoming “We Gon’ Be Alright” mural on Hill and Floyd streets. The idea is to incorporate as many artists from the surrounding neighborhoods (California, Limerick, Old Louisville, Park Hill, St. Joseph, Shelby Park, Smoketown, Card Town, Schnitzelburg, Germantown, Algonquin, and Merriwether) as possible. With that in mind we have decided to split each phrase in half (see template) to make a total of 4 sections and have 4 artists/crews work on each, and when completed all sections should line up together. The only stipulation is the lettering size and placement be congruent, the rest is entirely up to you (foreground, background, font, etc.).
Please visit our Mural Information page for details.
Unfortunately there isn't much time to get proposals in to the city, So please share this info with anyone you know who may be interested.
