The Future is Now is mentorship program that matches JCPS high school students with professional local artists in Louisville, Kentucky. This summer we were so excited to partner with The Kentucky College of Art + Design at Spalding University to bring The Future Is Now back for Summer 2016! We had six amazing students and six wonderful artist mentors participate! You can see all their artwork at their exhibition at the Huff Gallery.
We are so excited to share this short film documenting six months of The Future Is Now! A HUGE thank you to the folks over at Language&Logic for really capturing the heart and soul of the program and translating it so perfectly to film.
The Future is Now is mentorship program that matches JCPS high school students with professional local artist in Louisville, Kentucky. For half a year, each team worked towards creating individual and collaborative pieces for an exhibition in the Green Building Gallery. Along the way, the gallery and mentors taught the students about new artistic processes, portfolio building, exhibition design, installation, marketing, and what it takes to be a professional artist.
