LoCAL.streets Exhibition at The Muhammad Ali Center

...opening February 4, 2011...‏

The Muhammad Ali Center and curator Daniel Pfalzgraf presents a Louisville Contemporary Art Lounge exhibition “LoCAL.streets.” 

The exhibition opens with a reception for the artists on Friday, February 4, 2011 from 6pm – 9pm in conjunction with the First Friday Trolley Hop and will continue through Saturday, April 30, 2011.
“LoCAL.streets” is a collection of work centered on the urban environment.  All the works presented in this exhibit are direct reflections of, or reactions to, the streets, buildings, flow and life within the city.  “LoCAL.streets” seeks to draw a parallel between the art created in the streets with art displayed within the galleries of the city, to create bridges of understanding and appreciation of two separate worlds that often share the same geographical location.

Participating artists include many well-regarded street and gallery artists from Louisville and beyond.  Among the artists involved with “LoCAL.streets” are:
Julius Friedman, Mark Anthony Mulligan, Henry Cunningham, Brad White, Sarah Lyon, Tom Pfannerstill, Matt Loeser, Billy Hertz, Chris Chappell, Geoff Carr, James Doiron, Christa Faulkner, Stephanie Potter, Frankie Steele, Mario Mueller from Los Angles, Quincy Owens and Christian Forrer from Indianapolis, Indiana, Thom Shaw from Cincinnati Ohio, and Danny Babcock, Robby Burgess and Matthew Dayler of Higher Level Art from Cincinnati, Ohio.

Located in the heart of downtown Louisville, Kentucky, the Muhammad Ali Center is both a cultural attraction and an international education center that is inspired by the ideals of its founder Muhammad Ali.  The Ali Center’s 2 ½ levels of innovative exhibits, educational and public programming, and global initiatives carry on Muhammad’s legacy and inspire exploration of the greatness within ourselves. 

The Muhammad Ali Center is located at One Muhammad Ali Plaza, 144 N. Sixth Street, Louisville, KY 40202.  Hours of operation are Tuesday – Saturday       9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m, Sunday 12 noon – 5 p.m, Closed Mondays.

Over the Christmas break, Dec 22 to Jan 2, at Holmes High School and Middle School in Covington KY, Danny and Matthew continued their on-going classroom project.  In this round of rooms we completed two Social Studies Classrooms.  Embracing elements from the curriculum they went around the world and back again stopping in the good ole USA.  This was a crazy amount of work in 10 days.  Check out the new video and images from the rooms.  Coming up there will be  a "Jungle" Gymnasium from Danny and some serious Legends from Dayler.
