We invested and supported Gibbs Rounsavall, a local artist and teacher well-known for his abstract enamel paintings exploring movement through pattern and color, to take on a new creative project outside of the studio and in public. Our investment in Rounsavall provided him the time and the resources to pursue his creative vision for a mural that we believe will have far-reaching implications for himself, his work, and the community. Rounsavall was given full creative control to design and install a mural that would beautify and inspire the community.
In the summer of 2015, we started meeting with Rounsavall to discuss a potential partnership to design and install a large mural in the Shelby Park neighborhood of Louisville. We helped discover and confirm a building that would be used by Rounsavall as his canvas for a 750-square-foot mural. After selecting a building, Rounsavall began designing a small mock-up of the mural while our team assembled volunteers to help clean and prime the walls for the project.
“The community becomes an active participant in the whole creative process and that has been very exciting. It is definitely going to steer my whole process into a new direction,” said Rounsavall.
Our vision is to impact the world by providing capital to the best organizations. If you have a project or idea you’d like to discuss with us then please send us information about your business to review.1155 S Shelby St. Louisvill, KY 40203
