This event has been cancelled – The 2021 Imagine Mural Festival will bring together collaborative teams of interdisciplinary artists to create multimedia art installations in the downtown Louisville blocks adjacent to the Muhammad Ali Center. The central theme of this years Imagine Mural Festival is We are the Home of the Greatest , which celebrates the legacy of Muhammad Ali, the city from which he hailed, and the only place in the world that is charged with preserving and sharing his legacy with the world.
The festival will coincide with the premiere of PBSs new Muhammad Ali mini-documentary series celebrating the life and legacy of Louisvilles own Muhammad Ali. The new four-part documentary is directed by acclaimed filmmaker Ken Burns and will air on KET on September 19-22, 8:00-10:00 p.m. ET. Interdisciplinary murals will be created in the weeks leading up to the PBS premiere and will be unveiled at a festival event on September 18, 2021, part of an Ali Premiere Week series of events that will also include a free in-person screening event hosted by KET and the final national virtual conversation around the film.
The 2021 festival is the second iteration of the Imagine Mural Festival, which had its inaugural year in 2019. The festival grew out of the Imagine Greater Louisville cultural plan and it showcased local, national, and international artistic talent by bringing a variety of traditional murals to Louisvilles historic Smoketown neighborhood.More Information
