Beginning on August 4, the public can stop by the space to check out 1B and also view IDEAS 40203's contemporary art exhibit featuring 12 Louisville-based artists.

HEREart, New York City, New York
A group exhibition titled Space Landscape, curated by Robert Lucy, was a show of photography, sculpture and video that will take you to the outer reaches of the universe using the most ordinary of materials.
Since 1993, HERE has been one of New York’s most prolific producing organizations, and today, it stands at the forefront of the city’s presenters of daring new hybrid art. HERE supports multidisciplinary work that does not fit into a conventional programming agenda.
For Space Landscape, I exhibited Forces of Nature: Whirlpools and Walmart Bath Rugs. Created with duct tape and bath rugs, this artwork was inspired by theories of relativity and color theory.
