Yelp’s Art in Action 2016 celebrated the creativity of Louisville and beyond!
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!
The third annual event featured beautiful eats, exquisite drinks, interactive exhibitions and engrossing performances from 50+ of Louisville’s most innovative businesses, nonprofits and groups in the iconic Louisville Palace. Part foodie-event and part-performance with other bits of Louisville creativity mixed in, highlights included performances by Kentucky Opera, CirqueLouis, Backtrack and Acting Against Cancer. The event also included a fashion show and lounge, interactive art pieces and one-night-only food and drinks.
And through the event, the more than 700 Louisville Yelpers in attendance raised roughly $4,000 for our main non-profit sponsor, Strive, which seeks to provide creative wellness education and services to the Louisville community.
Big thanks to our sponsors!
