'Blight Out' creates art from necessity
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The cure for boredom was board-em Saturday.
That's when the fourth Blight Out-Brighten Up, the Metro Louisville Department of Codes and Regulations' paint-a-thon that is designed to make vacant or abandoned properties look better, took place.
Dozens of artists, preschool-aged to those in their golden years, filled the Merriwether Avenue garage to add color and style to about 200 sheets of 4-by-8 foot particle board used to cover windows in an effort to secure buildings from vandalism, vagr ants and squatters.
The boards will go up on properties around the Metro next week.
