Jeffersonville’s NoCo Arts & Cultural District brings Aesop Fables to the Table with free community events in July


Jeffersonville, Indiana – The NoCo Arts Center, located at 628 Michigan Avenue will soon be sizzling in the month of July with activities centered on the stories of Aesop’s Fables! The City of Jeffersonville, the Jeffersonville Public Art Commission and the Jeffersonville Public Library have been working “behind the scenes” for the past six months in preparation for a myriad of activities happening the last two full weeks of July, which center around the art of the fable. An art exhibition, guest artist lecture, community making sessions and children’s workshops will all be a part of this special literary infused creative programming!


The culminating feature to these activities will be a 14-foot tall sculpture designed by guest artist-in-residence, Brian Somerville. The final piece will be a collaborative effort between Somerville and the community with an intended install time frame of August 2019! The final piece will serve as a gateway sculpture to the new NoCo Arts & Cultural District and will depict the Aesop Fable – ‘The Lion & the Oxen’ – with a poignant moral of “united we stand, divided we fall”. A fitting moral for a fast developing district, community and region! For more information, feel free to check out the events posted on the social media sites below as well as the promotional material designed for all of the activities connected to this piece.
