Hello all!

Jennifer here! Just want to give an update about Three Points! I know Three Points has seemed dormant these last few months, but I assure you that we have been busy working on existing projects and some exciting new ones! So, let’s dive right in!

The Ackerman Millworks mural on Goss Avenue has been in full swing! We have 29 faces and 82 names going on the wall! It has been a monumental task organizing all of those! We are doing our best to make sure we didn’t overlook anyone (more on this tomorrow!). You may have noticed that the wall has been primed and some figures added. The goal was to get the wall primed before winter, so we can quickly get started this spring. The figures were to help the artist, Stephen Paulovich, determine scale. In the fall, we collected pictures for the wall faces and took in-studio portraits of those who were able. Stephen has been working in his Portland studio through the winter with these photos to create scale drawings of figures that will be transferred onto the wall. Once we have more stable weather, you’ll see Stephen out there painting! Once the wall in near completion, we will be adding the new lighting and landscaping, PLUS a new bike pump and repair station to the corner!!

We have also been working with Abell Elevator on a new project putting art on some of their buildings that extend from the main one along Logan Street. Often Seen Rarely Spoken is working on this project and we are super thrilled to spruce up this space in the next couple of months! Along with new art, Abell will be getting a fresh coat of paint on their existing logo on the main building!

Underhill Associates also contacted Three Points about doing a mural on one of their buildings at the Germantown Mill Lofts. Chris Chappell has been working on a simple design of an artifact that was used in the former cotton mill. We're ready to roll!

As the weather gets warmer, we’ll also be cleaning up the original project area at the Logan and Goss Avenue intersection. Dead plant matter will be raked away to make room for new growth, trash will be cleaned up, and mulch will be laid. We are also working on replacing the community bulletin board that was punched through by some angry passerby. More on this and volunteer opportunities to come!

On a more personal note, I have been elected as a Jefferson County Soil and Water Conservation District Officer. If you lived in Jefferson County during the November election, I was on your ballot. I’m excited to join a wonderful group of green-minded individuals to help our urban environment conserve natural resources and create a sustainable future for all.

I have also joined the Center For Neighborhoods Board of Directors and look forward to helping communities within Louisville grow and thrive. I will be working with the programs committee to develop Better Blocks Louisville (stay tuned – the first Better Blocks program is coming to Shelby Park!) and expand current programs such as P.A.I.N.T. and Neighborhood Institute.

As always, THANK YOU so much for your support!! Without YOU, Three Points wouldn’t be around.
