Louisville is the largest city in the state of Kentucky, yet often the pronunciation trips everyone up, even people who live there. So how do you pronounce Louisville? According to this article, only two pronunciations are correct: Loo-a-vul and Loo-a-ville.

No matter how you say it, the city that’s home to bourbon, the Louisville Slugger Museum, and the Kentucky Derby has a growing mural and art scene. While meeting up with friends for post holiday events, I decided to do a little mural hunting in the Derby City and I’m sure I only covered about half of the murals in town.

More adventure awaits in this city just over the river from Indiana.

“LOVE” mural: found right across the street from the Butchertown Crossfit, 37 Buchanan St. 
Artist: Unsure

Flower Mural on the side of the Red Tree Furniture Store, 701 E Market St.
Artist: Liz Richter.


On the side of Red Top, 1127 Logan St.
Artist: Unknown.


Right across the street from Red Dog.
Artist: The Art Cartel.


Scarlet’s Bakery, 741 E Oak St.
Artist: Gibbs Rounsavall.

A few feet away from Scarlet’s, you will find this other bright mural with primary colors.
Artist: Unsure.


A few blocks over is this super cool “To the Top” mural which was designed by the Often Seen, Rarely Spoken group. They painted it on the side of Abell Elevator.


On the wall adjacent to To the Top, is a fun geometric mural.

Then literally right down the street (you can see it from To the Top) is another geometric design, which from a distance is supposed to look like flowers.

    I had no idea that Louisville had such a rich street art! Always happy to see city greeting card murals, I wonder what major cities don’t have them? Thanks again for sharing this great post.

      If you go to the Greetings Tour web site, you can find all the murals they have painted. There are still lots of cities that don’t have them but they are busy painting all over the US!
