Art That Swings

Voluforms of Jeffersonville, Indiana was one of 23 sponsors supporting 'Art that Swings' a special fundraising event on behalf of the Arts Council of Southern Indiana. This very unique artistic celebration of the 125th Anniversary of Louisville Slugger took place on August 1, 2009 at the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory.

As a 'Batting a Thousand' sponsor, Voluforms was given the opportunity to choose one of the 30 artistically designed Louisville Slugger bats created by Southern Indiana artists.

Mike and Mark Stewart, owners of Voluforms chose a bat entitled, 'The Spirit of Kentuckiana', designed by Georgia Lee Farr of Jeffersonville, Indiana. Georgia submitted the following statement in regards to her unique design of the bat:

'The Louisville Water Tower has special meaning to me while remembering teaching art classes there for several years. The Water Tower has been my favorite view along the river and inspiration to the Arts – being home to the Louisville Visual Art Association. This is a unique opportunity to be able to merge the arts and sports together as we realize the importance of each in our lives.'

The wooden baseball bat painted with acrylic paint included scenes of Louisville from Southern Indiana shores, the old Louisville Water Tower and the Belle of Louisville along with decorative designs and sports interests.

The Arts Council of Southern Indiana has been serving students, artists, educators, schools, libraries, and nonprofit organizations for over 30 years.
