City leaders meet to discuss public art

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS 11)--City leaders will meet to discuss public art displays throughout the city and what they represent.

After the statue of John Castleman in the Highlands was vandalized in the fall, the city opened the floor for public debate on art in the community and if they represent images of bigotry or hate.

The statue of the Confederate officer was vandalized the same weekend white nationalist rallied in Charlottesville.

The commission has a regularly scheduled meeting at 4 p.m. Dec.11 at the Metro Development Center on 4th street.
