BGD Attorney Steve Wilson Discusses New Home for Louisville Visual Art Association
Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP partner Steven R. Wilson discussed the new home for the Louisville Visual Art Association in a recent edition of the Courier-Journal.
According to The Courier-Journal, the 105-year-old Louisville Visual Art Association bought a building in the Portland neighborhood's warehouse district for $460,000 with plans to launch a capital campaign by June 1 for renovations to its new home.
The purchase comes more than two years after the LVAA had to abandon its home at the Water Tower on Zorn Avenue.
“Working from multiple locations has been a struggle, but we’ve been resilient,” said Wilson, who serves as vice president of the LVAA. “Having this new home will give us the opportunity to take control of our own narrative and be visionaries.”
The LVAA plans to launch a capital campaign by June 1 for renovations to the new space. The planning process for the space is slated to happen over the next year with specific plans to be announced in phases. The goal is for the building to be move in ready by summer of 2016.
