2015 Governor's Derby Celebration

Call to Kentucky elementary, middle and
high schools

Picnic table horse blanket cover 1 Be a part of the Governor’s Derby Celebration by contributing a painted canvas for the tables on the grounds of the Old State Capitol during the festivities. The tables will be decorated as horses with a head and a tail affixed to each table. The painted canvas will be used as a horse blanket and draped across the table. The Kentucky Arts Council will provide canvas to schools that want to participate. Schools must use their own supplies to complete the paintings.

The table top dimensions are 28 inches wide by 72 inches long and the canvas will be sized and cut to drape over the sides of the table. Paint must be outdoor latex and able to withstand inclement weather.

Picnic table horse blanket cover 2 There are no theme requirements, but painted canvases will be used as part of the Derby celebrations. Schools will be responsible for mailing canvases back to the Kentucky Arts Council. The Kentucky Arts Council retains the right to select which canvases to display and all canvases become the property of the Kentucky Arts Council. The Kentucky Arts Council will acknowledge the school, class or students that contribute to the finished product during the festivities. 2016 is the Kentucky Arts Council’s 50th anniversary as the state’s arts agency. In honor of that milestone, we will accept canvases from the first 50 applicants, one canvas per school.

All completed canvases must be returned to the Kentucky Arts Council by Friday, April 22, 2016, for consideration. Contact Jean St. John, or 888-833-2787 ext. 486 to request a canvas for your school.
