Louisville Public Media will celebrate the completion of its newly renovated headquarters on South 4th St. with a community block party on Sunday, September 17 from 1 to 5 p.m. (between Chestnut St. and The Louisville Palace). The FREE event will feature food trucks, a beer garden, hands-on family activities, live music, tours of the building, and a visit by NPR president and CEO Jarl Mohn.
The event will also feature performances by artists in The Louisville Accord including Jecorey "1200" Arthur, Steve Cooley, Aaron Bibelhauser, Tyrone Cotton and Mark Charles Heidinger (Vandaveer). Teddy Abrams and Arthur will preview a selection from an original work about Muhammad Ali that debuts during the Louisville Orchestra’s upcoming season.
The renovation of the Louisville Public Media headquarters was made possible by the successful Raise Your Voice $7 million capital campaign.
Support for this event comes from Kindred Healthcare, Mercury Ballroom and Semonin Realtors.
