Adair Co. art teacher honored in Frankfort
By Laura Marcum
Darlene Campbell, Art teacher at Adair Country Primary Center, applied to have her work included in an exhibit entitled Native Reflections, which was put together by the Kentucky Arts Council, the Kentucky Heritage Council, and the Kentucky Native American Heritage Commission. To be eligible for inclusion in the exhibit applicants had to have Native American heritage and produce art of high quality.
The exhibit was scheduled to tour the state of Kentucky for one year, but, due to COVID 19, some of the showings had to be cancelled and the tour was extended to last throughout March of 2022.
This past week, participating artists were invited to the capitol rotunda to meet with Governor Andy Beshear, who met with and personally interviewed each artist. Governor Beshear then spoke about the importance promoting the Arts in Kentucky and the importance of preserving Kentucky's history.
Darlene says, "While I was at the capitol building, I heard the capitol staff talking about the LWC singers coming and I was like, "Wow, this is a great day for seeing Columbia recognized in Frankfort. I dream of the day when Columbia, Kentucky, is a name that people associate with the Arts and Education. We already have the top-notch high school band in the state. We have some amazingly talented teachers and students. I would love to see Adair County, in particular--Columbia, become the Art Capital of southern Kentucky. Every town needs to be known for something. Why can't we be known for our commitment to the Arts?"
Darlene plans to have her Kindergarten through Second grade students work on display around the Public Square by December 4, and wishes to thank every business who said, "Yes," to highlighting the kids of Adair County and displaying their work.
