June 23, 2003 (Lexington, Ky.) -- An exhibit of artworks called “City and Self: Meditations on the Urban Experience,” based on interpreting the urban environment, will run June 30 through July 21 at the Urban Design Studio, 507 S. Third St., Louisville. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and weekends by appointment (502) 587-7015.

Curated by Lisa Mosier and Myra Silva, the show was inspired by efforts to bring artists and architects from Lexington and Louisville to a common task: interpreting the experience of the city and how it shapes self-image, through the medium of studio art.

The Urban Design Studio is a partnership by the UK School of Architecture, the U of L School of Urban and Public Affairs and the Metro Louisville Department of Planning and Design. It was established in 2000 to provide a forum for students and community members to address specific issues of architecture and urbanism within Louisville.
