ReSurfaced is a pop-up plaza for arts, music, food, drinks and other events. It starts at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 15, in the parking lot where 10th Street meets the Ohio River. Against the Grain will sell beer throughout the weekend, and local food trucks will be on site as well.
A variety of entertainment is planned, including a different DJ each night. On Thursday, there will be an art carnival featuring visual art in nontraditional ways. Friday will include a street fashion show of streetwear created by Louisville designers. On Saturday, the second SlowFood Fried Chicken Throwdown will showcase a lineup of local restaurants. A costume dance party will close out the three-day event Saturday night.
The event is being curated by City Collaborative and local hip-hop artist Jecorey “1200” Arthur, who said, “The programming is all about abnormality. Programming in the past revolved around live music, but the new location will focus on unfamiliar components of art.”
The previous ReSurfaced events also featured film, dance and theater.
“The great divide between the East and West ends of town inspired this program,” Arthur said in a press release. “By showing collaborations between groups that typically do not work together, ReSurfaced is advocating unity in Louisville. The location of the event also embodies the belief that Louisville can be whole instead of two halves.”
ReSurfaced is free and open to the public. It will be open on Thursday from 5-10 p.m., Friday from 5-11 p.m., and Saturday from noon-11 p.m. For more information about programming, click here.
