The Healthy House Art Gallery explores the intersection of healing the urban environment and strengthening the holistic health of urban residents through music, visual art, movement-based creative expression and expressive writing. The Healthy House is open to the public on Fridays, 1-3pm.



CURRENT EXHIBITION: That Wild Life: Woodcuts of Harlan Hubbard
DATES: October 5, 2018- December 7, 2018

Meet and Greet with Jessica Whitehead, Exhibit Curator: November 2, 2018- 5:30-8pm

She will answer questions and provide an interactive activity where you can make your own print to take home. The film, “Wonder: The Lives of Anna and Harlan Hubbard” will be playing throughout the event. Snacks will also be provided.


“Beyond the joy of presenting such thoughtful works of art, just the act of viewing Hubbard’s Ohio River landscapes in the Portland neighborhood feels like a homecoming. The bustling river culture that once existed where the gallery stands represented a piece of the larger “river way of life” that Hubbard admired and, eventually, adopted for himself. The 20th century decline of such communities makes organizations like Louisville Grows that much more important to the present life of the city, and makes Hubbard’s ideas, art, and life especially relevant. I hope that visitors will see how Hubbard’s philosophy, as expressed in his art, can promote the individual and communal well being we all so desperately need.” -Jessica Whitehead

At the Healthy House Art Gallery, we believe:

– Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being rather than merely the absence of disease or infirmity;

– Exposure to and experience with urban nature educates, inspires and motivates people of all ages and often evokes our instinct toward creative expression; and

– Creative expression is healing; it mends emotional injuries, increases understanding of self and others, develops capacities for self-reflection, increases overall health and alters behaviors and thinking patterns.
