Dear Stakeholders in the Arts,

October is National Arts and Humanities Month, a coast-to-coast collective recognition of the importance of culture in America. Traditionally, we celebrate the Governor’s Awards in the Arts during this month, and we will do so again this year on Oct. 21 in the Capitol Rotunda in Frankfort. We would also like to know what you are doing in your communities. Share those ideas and photos on our Facebook page!

As many of you know, we recently completed our move from Capital Plaza Tower to 1025 Capital Center Drive in Frankfort. We are settling in to our new space and, in addition to the Governor’s Awards, we are looking forward to hosting Master Class, Oct. 13.

It’s still not too late to register for Master Class: A Learning Lab on Marketing Performances. This workshop is ideal for individuals or groups who plan for, and present, live performance, including performing arts presenters, park directors, festival organizers, Main Street managers, Trail Town participants, community groups and organizations, librarians, civic organization leaders, event planners, college and university activity boards, business leaders, government agencies and others.

The day will include performances by six acts from the Kentucky Arts Council’s Performing Artists Directory and workshops on marketing and social media. This free event runs from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Oct. 13 at the Grand Theatre in Frankfort. Registration is required.

Join us the following week for the Governor’s Awards in the Arts ceremony, 10 a.m., Oct. 21, at the Capitol Rotunda. The awards honor eight recipients for outstanding contribution, achievement in and support of the arts. The ceremony is free and open to the public, as is the reception that will follow on the Mezzanine. We invite you to come celebrate with us in Frankfort.
