In the spring of 2018, Richard Rosen approached Josephine Sculpture Park with an idea to place sculptures downtown in an effort to improve the local economy. He knew that more public art would draw more people downtown. With tremendous financial support from Richard, in 2019, Arts Downtown was made a reality with six sculptures installed and three murals currently in progress. This is a partnership with FrankArts, the City of Frankfort, Franklin Co. Fiscal Court and Franklin Co. Tourist Commission that helps JSP fulfill their mission by providing creative experiences to the public. The initial donation from Mr. Rosen was seed money to launch the program, which has been an inspiring success. Now, it is up to our community to continue this momentum and with your help, we are well on our way to becoming the Public Art Capital of Kentucky!
