‘Land Is: Parks, Cultures, Stories’

Frederick Law Olmsted, landscape architect of revered Louisville sites such as Shawnee and Cherokee parks, believed spaces have “the genius of a place” with ecological and spiritual qualities. Social change artist Ramona Lindsey acknowledges that some parks and open areas can lose those qualities by falling victim to systemic inequity. She curated “Land Is” to focus on “what happens to community when economic and racial inequity leads to oppressive and under resourced public spaces.” The exhibition features work by Nubia Bennett, Jonathan P. Cherry, Joshua Jean-Marie, Abdul Sharif, City Voices, T. A. Yero and Lindsey. A virtual panel discussion by the photographers in the show is on Wednesday, Feb. 10 at 6 p.m. Attendance is free but registration is required.
