Art in the Highlands is the New Ursulines Art Fair

Earlier this year the Ursuline Sisters of Louisville announced that after 22 years the Ursulines Art Fair, which used to draw upwards of 35,000 people in September, was no longer. Enter the Louisville Collegiate School to pick up the art fair baton.

Art in the Highlands will be September 19 and 20 from 10am-5pm on the Louisville Collegiate campus. The event will feature 80 juried artists, including many who used to show at the Ursulines event.

According to the website:

Introducing this event to the community is a way for us to extend our arts education beyond our campus community. All proceeds from the event will support Collegiate students through tuition assistance and scholarships, technology, fine arts, athletics and professional development for faculty and staff.
A list of the artists and craftspeople is available here. This city is just silly for art fairs; here's hoping that this one is as successful as so many others have been!
