Heather O’Mara, Louisville Visual Art Association


"Heather

Heather O’Mara is the public relations officer of the Louisville Visual Art Association. Before joining the association, she worked at the Institute for Learning Innovations in Annapolis, MD, where she did projects with the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History and the National Aquarium in Baltimore. Heather has also worked in the Speed Museum’s Art Learning Center as the assistant gallery manager. She is a graduate of the University of Louisville, where she received her degree in humanities, concentrating in art history and theater with a minor in women’s studies.

Since 1909, the Louisville Visual Art Association has been the area’s foremost contemporary visual art center. Although a non-collecting organization, it is organized like a museum, with a volunteer board. Its mission is to engage the community in creating and appreciating today’s visual art.

The LVAA maintains its leadership role through an active schedule of one-of-a-kind special events, exhibitions, and art classes. Its facilities include gallery, workshop, and administrative office space at Louisville’s landmark Water Tower; an education facility at Artopia Creative Studios in St. Matthews; and TryArt Gallery at the AEGON Building. A member of the Fund for the Arts, the association is funded in part by the Kentucky Arts Council, an agency of the Kentucky Education, Arts, and Humanities Cabinet.
