When & Where
The LGDA was formed in 1988 in order to enhance the quality of design in our home community of Louisville, Kentucky. On a larger scale the group strives to educate the general public and business community about design and its effect on our daily lives. We are an entirely volunteer-based non-profit organization that relies on the passion of its members.
