Born out of a desire to integrate contemporary art into everyday life, 21c launched in Downtown Louisville, Kentucky in 2006. Come explore for yourself and discover how 21c is redefining the art of modern Southern Hospitality.
For over 10 years now, 21c Louisville has been engaging visitors and locals alike with the art of today. Look for a double-size replica of David (inspired by Michaelangelo), which marks our location at the corner of 7th and Main Streets; then explore the current exhibition; dine in the immersive experience at Proof on Main, Fallen Fruit: The Practices of Everyday Life; or sleep in a site specific installation Asleep in the Cyclone.
Five 19th century warehouses were reimagined to offer more than 9,000 square feet of exhibition space where curated exhibitions and site-specific installations reflect the global nature of contemporary culture. Our galleries are open every day and exhibitions rotate, so make plans to visit often. And please take advantage of regular cultural programming, too.
