Artist in Residence Program

Supporting Art in Louisville

The Galt House Hotel is pleased to introduce the first Artist in Residency program for the hotel. This unique program brings artists from Louisville, its surrounding areas, and even worldwide to the hotel for guests and visitors to experience the artistry that Louisville has to offer.

The city of Louisville has always embraced the traditional artwork and artisanal craftworks that her citizens have created. Over time, Louisville has become a quiet cultural mecca for emerging artists and craftsman to showcase their exciting and exceptional works of art.

The artist in residence program is an opportunity for the Galt House Hotel to bring art in its many forms directly to the many national and international visitors that visit the hotel. The artist’s studio space is located in the main corridor of the hotel, allowing guests and visitors to have a personal opportunity to meet the artists and watch them create. 

Visual artists of all mediums are encouraged to apply for this distinctive program. It is the hope that while in residence, the artist will find opportunities to use the Galt House as a source of inspiration for the many pieces that they create during their tenure. At the end of the residency, the artist will gift a signature legacy piece of their artwork to the hotel as a piece of their artistic legacy.
