The DuPont Mansion has hosted "Art in the Garden" for the past 9 years as a part of the Old Louisville Hidden Treasures Garden Tour. Held each year during the second weekend in July, the Garden Tour welcomes garden lovers into the private green spaces of the nation’s largest Victorian residential neighborhood. Visitors attending the tour get a glimpse of many Old Louisville gardens and personal retreats tucked behind Victorian homes and carriage houses. The garden tours are designed to be walked so that visitors can experience the scale of Old Louisville residences and the peacefulness of its gardens. This year's Garden Tour was held July 9 and 10.
We have commissioned local artist, Linda Jones, to paint next year's poster art. Linda has been an artist painting in the DuPont gardens during "Art in the Garden" for each of the 9 years.
