This month is Derby themes at Mellwood Arts and Entertainment Center and the Frankfort Avenue Business Association along with the Trolley Hop has a complete entertainment venue of arts, music and food laid out for this Fat Friday.
Friday nights Mellwood/Frankfort Avenue Fat Friday Trolley Hop was not only an art lovers dream, it was about creating dreams. While customers shopped and saved money, they helped local store owners give back to help give needy families and children a Christmas some may not have had by Shop with a Cop, Backpacks for Kids, Toys for Tots and several other programs.
Revelry means boisterous festivity, merrymaking and celebration. The night I was there Revelry lived up to its name! Situated in the Highlands between Regalio and The Herb Import Co., two doors down from Lynn's Paradise Café, this quaint little gallery is warm and welcoming.

Kites are fun, colorful come in all shapes and sizes. Kids and adults alike love kites. Who would have thought kites would have a place in history? The Kentucky Museum of Arts and Crafts can tell us all about that.
Bones...when someone thinks of bones, they think of the human skeleton. I automatically think of the song my grandmother taught me when I was a little girl; The ankle bone connected to the shin bone, shin bone connected to the knee bone, knee bone connected to the thigh bone, the thigh bone connected to the hip bone and you go all the way up until you connect the neck bone to the head bone. The rest of the song talks about tripping over shoelaces and being a fool.The Bones on exhibit at the Arts Council of Southern Indiana, Pat Harrison Arts Center had nothing to do with the human bones or that song...however I'm sure that Mary; the resident ghost (so the story is told) also sung that song to her children and grandchildren.

World Fest 2011...3 days of dancing, music, foods, arts, crafts and fun from a variety of cultures all in one place. From Hard Rock Cafes Tour Bus, to Louisville's very own talented musicians performing on the steps as you enter World Fest; you could hear and see the Belvedere spark with laughter, applause and smiles of approval as thousands daily enjoyed the festivities.
Hub caps and Art: when you think of these you normally do not put them together. I ask Chris, a visitor to our beautiful city, who resides in Columbus Ohio and is in town for the World Fest, what is the first thing he thinks of when he hears the word hub caps. He said, "riding down the road and one popping off so you have to go chase it." I found that quite amusing given the story that artist Karen Welch relayed to me about a certain artist hub cap. You can hear that story and see that hubcap for the final week at the Museum of Arts and Crafts.www.kentuckyarts.org
