Arts Day in Kentucky celebrates support for the arts
By Tom Musgrave
News from Kentucky Center for the Arts
FRANKFORT, KY (Thu 26 Jan 2016) - The Kentucky Arts Council and arts organizations from across the state will celebrate Arts Day in Kentucky, 10am-1pmCT/11am-2pmET, in the Capitol Rotunda, 700 Capital Avenue in Frankfort.
The arts council hosts Arts Day each year during the legislative session to bring awareness to the many roles the arts play in the Commonwealth. Arts leaders, artists, the general public and other supporters of the arts gather to celebrate the arts and the creative industry, and recognize the Kentucky General Assembly for its continued support of the arts.
"Arts Day is our time to say 'thank you' to the legislators who continually support our mission through funding and their own advocacy," said Lydia Bailey Brown, arts council executive director. "It's also a celebration of artistic excellence across the state, and a great opportunity for our Kentucky Arts Partnership organizations to network with each other, to everyone's benefit."
For the 2017 fiscal year, the arts council awarded $1.3 million in Kentucky Arts Partnership (KAP) grants to 93 arts organizations throughout the state.
In addition to providing an avenue for Kentucky artists to meet their legislators, Arts Day will also feature demonstrations and performances from several artists.
