J Arts & Ideas: A Broken Hallelujah
March 20, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$14 – $26
It is with great disappointment that I must inform you of the unfortunate cancellation of today’s Arts & Ideas Event, Liel Leibovitz/ A Broken Hallelujah. We received a last minute call from Mr. Leibovitz late this morning informing us he missed his flight from New York to Louisville and will not be able to keep his commitment to us for today’s event. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you.
Thank you again for being understanding regarding today’s difficult situation and for your support of our newest venture, J Arts & Ideas. I look forward to seeing each of you in April at the Standard Club for our next offering.
