    Louisville, City in Transition by Ivey Cousins
    Dates: September 26 – November 10, 2019
    Events: Opening Reception Thursday, September 26, 5:00 – 6:30pm

    Ivey W. Cousins captured streetscapes and buildings in downtown Louisville from Broadway north to the Ohio River, and the residential district of Third and Fourth Streets in Old Louisville in 1959. During an era of transition with urban renewal in full swing, construction of expressways, and the expansion of the downtown medical complex—Cousins documented many of the buildings and streetscapes lost to history.
