Yelp’s Art in Action 2017 celebrates the creativity of Louisville and beyond!
This fourth annual, signature event will feature innovative eats, exquisite drinks, interactive exhibitions and captivating performances from more than 50 of Louisville and the region’s most creative businesses, nonprofits and groups in the iconic Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts. It takes Yelp’s purpose of connecting people with great local businesses out of cyberspace and into a more intimate setting.
From Louisville’s ground-breaking culinary scene to its Possibility City spirit, creativity is intrinsic to what makes the Derby City so weird and wonderful. So we say revel in it! It will be a night chock full of more interesting scenes than you’ll be able to point a smartphone at — though you’re welcome to try.
And the best part is that admission is FREE, with confirmed RSVP. All food and activities are free, and drink samples will be provided by Yelp. This event is 21+.
This event is a major fundraiser for our main nonprofit sponsor, The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts (kentuckycenter.org). A suggested $20 donation will be requested at the door, and 100 percent of donations will go to the nonprofit, which leads and enriches the artistic, educational and economic vitality of the region by providing unparalleled programming, cultural events and community outreach.
The Kentucky Center’s nationally recognized Education and Community Arts programs include Arts in Healing, ArtsReach, School Programs and the Governor’s School for the Arts. The Center served more than 25,000 patrons in 2015-2016 alone through its Education and Community Arts mission. More than 10,000 youths benefited from hands-on arts instruction, performance opportunities and ticket subsidies. Its various outreach programs reached 113 counties across the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
