Umbrella Alley is the newest art attraction in downtown Louisville, Ohio! In partnership with citizens, local businesses, the City of Louisville and ArtsinStark, a long-held dream has become a reality. As part of the process of rejuvenating our city’s downtown and creating an artistic and welcoming location, nearly 200 umbrellas were installed in the heart of our city. Umbrella Alley has become a destination spot and is already bringing people downtown as well as bringing people together from all over the Tri-State area. Chairs and benches line the alley so patrons can enjoy “to-go” lunches from any one of our amazing local restaurants, or they can simply enjoy gathering with loved ones. Our lead artist, renown Jeffrey Keirn, motivates the team with his artwork as he brings his inspiration and vision to Umbrella Alley to fill the brick alley walls. In fact, the artwork and the umbrellas may change at any time thus the fun of returning several times a year!
