LOUISVILLE, Ky. (July 22, 2019) – Westport Village commissioned international street artist, Kelsey Montague, to create her first large-scale interactive mural in Louisville. The wings were uniquely designed for Louisville and incorporate red roses and racehorses in the design.
“We are excited that Westport Village will be home to Kelsey’s first mural in Louisville,” says Kelly Brown, General Manager of Westport Village. “We invite everyone to come down, snap a photo, post online and share what is most important in their lives.”
Montague started her #WhatLiftsYou movement in Manhattan with large-scale murals of her iconic wings. Celebrities including Taylor Swift and Vanessa Hudgens posed with the street art wings while media outlets like Mashable, MTV, Forbes and Refinery 29 have featured her work, making the artwork an overnight sensation.
“I believe that art should not be separated from the human experience,” says Montague. “Instead the human experience should have a hand in creating the art itself.”
