LOUISVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18) — Louisville now has a permanent mural that celebrates both the Kentucky Derby and bourbon.

The mural, on the side of Park Place Lofts near Slugger Field, was painted by Brown-Forman employee Keith Anderson and is a replica of his artwork for the 2018 Woodford Reserve Derby Bottle.

The colorful mural features horses breaking from the starting gate. The mural was finished last week, after two months of work.

Anderson was the 2018 and 2019 Woodford Reserve derby artist.

He was recently named by Churchill Downs as the official artist for the 2020 Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks.
