Louisville Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13) and Center for Neighborhoods unveiled the New Cut Road Mural at 5710 New Cut Road this past Saturday.
“I’m so excited to have such a beautiful representation of the South End. The artist Sabra Lynne Crockett has done a fantastic job, and I’m proud of the way the community has really rallied around this mural,” stated Councilwoman Welch.
The Councilwoman commissioned the mural, with additional funds provided by Louisville Forward.
The mural names the surrounding neighborhoods and depicts many natural and historic assets, set within the backdrop representing the area’s rolling hills and stunning landscapes.
Center for Neighborhoods held a community workshop in the Spring, where area residents gave ideas and recommendations about what the mural should look like. Interested artists were encouraged to spend time talking to area residents before developing their proposal. A committee comprised of area residents and community partners reviewed all proposals and made the final selection.
The New Cut Road Mural is the latest project from Center for Neighborhood’s Producing Art in Neighborhoods Together (P.A.I.N.T.) program. P.A.I.N.T. brings neighborhoods and artists together to create public art projects for neighborhoods throughout the Louisville Metro Area.
