We enlisted a graphic design class at Monarch High School to participate in an innovative logo contest, hoping to find an organization logo as unique as Louisville. The contest was an opportunity for emerging artists and graphic designers to showcase their abilities and contribute to the growing presence of the Foundation.
The students submitted 43 logo design ideas, each of which demonstrated their talent and love of Louisvile. We were fortunate to receive so many wonderful design ideas, and the Foundation directors chose four contest winners who each won $50 gift cards for their efforts: Kayla Claudia Flores, Abby Pelsmaeker, Dillon Spaena, and Kayla Chess.
Louisville Historical Museum Needs Assessment
The City of Louisville and the Louisville History Foundation contracted for a needs assessment to be conducted on the facilities, programs, and services of the Louisville Historical Museum—with the objective of obtaining recommendations from experts regarding the construction of a new building on the Museum campus on Main Street.
The final report from Metcalfe Architecture and Design is available to read online! The report addresses the City’s needs for such improvements as proper collection storage spaces for the artifacts and archival materials, adequate work space for staff and volunteers, and ADA compliant restrooms; but it also identifies the exciting potential for opening up the campus to the public in ways that are sure to enhance visitors’ enjoyment of downtown Louisville.
Antique Safe Cleaning
The antique safe at Louisville City Hall was lovingly cleaned by professional art restoration expert Lisa Capano in 2014 and funded by the Louisville History Foundation.
Louisville Law Enforcement Memorial at Helburg Park
In early 2012, a committee of citizens began to plan a memorial park suitable for Victor Helburg, and any future police officers who make the ultimate sacrifice for this community, to be located at the Police and Courts building. The park was dedicated on October 28th, 2015, the 100th anniversary of Victor Helburg’s death. Visit the park at the Police and Courts building at 992 W. Via Appia Way, Louisville, CO 80027.
