Have an appetite for art? Plenty of it is served up at the annual DinnerWorks event at the historic Louisville Water Tower. This mini-festival, organized by the Louisville Visual Art Association, consists of multiple events surrounding an exhibit of handmade dinnerware and uniquely designed table installations.
The Somali Bantu refugee women seen in our profile of DinnerWorks are part of Americana Fiberworks, a program of the Americana Community Center. This project uses the artistic process to encourage women to develop essential life skills and provides a structure within which trust and social support are developed.
The nonprofit Americana Community Center (366-7813) provides a broad spectrum of services for the many diverse residents of Metro Louisville. Its goals are to enable people to discover and make use of resources for building strong families; creating a safe, supportive community; and realizing their individual potential.
