2022 Louisville Visual Art Honors

The LVA Honors, commemorating local visual artists and art professionals, is back live. This year’s ceremony is presenting the Legacy Award to sculptor William M. Duffy. His latest public project are the stone benches along the Ohio River, part of the “On the Banks of Freedom” memorial. The Emerging Artist Award is going to Shohei Katayama. An artist who works in multiple media, including installations, line drawings and sculpture, he graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with an MFA in 2019. Janet Britt is receiving the Visual Art Educator Award. After also two decades at the St. Francis School in Goshen, Britt came to LVA to teach its art programs and has been there the past 12 years. The Benefactor Award will be given to artist Clare Hirn. She changed the art landscape in Louisville last year when she donated $1 million to help fund the Curatorial and Art Purchasing Program to get more art in public spaces.
