FRANKFORT, Ky. — The Kentucky Arts Council invites the Commonwealth's visual artists to submit work for consideration in the Governor's Derby Exhibit. The exhibit will be on display in the Capitol Rotunda March 25 through May 6.
Any Kentucky visual artist may submit up to two works for consideration. Work must be original, two-dimensional and ready for installation.
"The Governor's Derby Exhibit is an excellent opportunity for artists to participate in the state's annual Derby celebration," said Lori Meadows, arts council executive director. "I hope all of the state's artists, especially those who may not have worked with the arts council before, will consider submitting work for this exhibit."
Applications will be accepted online until Feb. 22, http://artscouncil.ky.gov/Opportunities/DerbyExhibitRegistration.htm. All Kentucky artists are welcome to apply. There is no fee associated with applying. Artists will be notified of selection for the exhibit the week of March 7.
For more information about the exhibit, contact Heidi Taylor-Caudill, arts council administrative associate, at Heidi.Taylor-Caudill@ky.gov or 888-833-2787, ext. 471.
The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, creates opportunities for Kentuckians to value, participate in and benefit from the arts. Kentucky Arts Council funding is provided by the Kentucky General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts.
