Contest to design four crosswalks on South Fourth Street. Deadline August 22nd.


Shared from Insider Louisville by Melissa Chipman


Artist? Designer? Eight-year-old with a box of crayons and a great imagination? Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer has announced a contest in conjunction with Vision Louisville and the SoBro Neighborhood Association to artfully redesign four crosswalks on Fourth Street in the SoBro neighborhood. Crosswalks at Fourth Street and Broadway, York, Breckinridge, and Kentucky will get a makeover designed by four contest winners. The contest rules ask that the designs match the nature of each block. For example, Fourth and York is where Spalding University is, so the winning design should be education-related. Other criteria the judges will use: Originality of idea and form. The design is innovative and fulfills its intended function in a visually provocative way. Compliance with design detail specifications and appropriately scaled. Potential impact. The design makes a meaningful contribution to the space and aids in activating the site. Winning entries will be selected by a panel of judges from the SoBro Neighborhood Association, Louisville Metro Government, and the Commission on Public Art. Because crosswalks are a matter of public safety, there are a lot of rules and regulations about the specifics of the design. You can read the four-page list of rules here. Designs are due by noon on Aug. 22 and can be presented in hardcopy or digital form. The winning crosswalk designs will be painted by community members on Sept. 14. 


Classes begin Monday, August 18th. See you then.

Photographer Rebecca Rose specializes in fashion, fine art, and conceptual portraits. Her primary subject is the female form.


Many of her photos feature bodies emerging from darkness or caught in a sate of evolution. Rose’s photos are an amalgam of studio production followed by digital enhancement, yet, her goal with every shot to is to capture her subjects in the spontaneity of the moment.

“I find inspiration by exploring emotions that are deep within the realm of my life experiences,” Rose explains. “I also use my observations of the natural world… how things move, and how light and shadows appear on various objects.”

The Louisville, KY native has an associate’s degree from Jefferson Community and Technical College, where she received the Outstanding Achievement Award in 2014 from the Communication Arts Technology Program. Rose’s work was featured in the 2013 Louisville Photo Biennial in an exhibition at the Krantz Gallery. She won three Gold Awards for black and white photography at the 2014 American Advertising Federation’s Louie Awards. Rose also has three silver awards for color photography from the same group.
