IDEAS and YouthBuild Louisville teamed up to present the Smoketown Arts Festival. This event includes arts activities by Steam Exchange, a performance by The River City Drum Corps and the premiere of the documentary “More Than Bricks and Mortar: Smoketown A New Beginning.” There will also be a presentation honoring the late Smoketown artist Zephra May Miller, fondly known as “The Bag Lady” because of her designs using plastic bags. The location is part of the celebration. “The park in which the festival is being held is across from YouthBuild’s learning campus,” states IDEAS co-founder Josh Miller. “[It’s] called ‘The People’s Park’ and was created last fall during the GE Smoketown Streetscape.” The festival will move across the street to Meyzeek Middle School if it rains.
