Showcasing the Arts



Derby Celebration 2019

The Governor’s Derby Exhibit was on display in the Kentucky State Capitol Rotunda. It features the work of 43 artists from across the Commonwealth with their interpretation of the theme “We Are Kentucky.

Native Reflections: Visual Art by American Indians of Kentucky

The Kentucky Arts Council, the Kentucky Native American Heritage Commission and the Kentucky Heritage Council worked together to invite American Indians living in Kentucky to share their visual art. A panel of American Indians and experts on Native American heritage selected works to include and the result is this amazing collection.

The Kentucky Veterans Project | Exhibit

The Kentucky Veteran Project exhibit features 44 pieces of art by military veterans and family members of veterans from 23 Kentucky counties. This exhibit was intentionally curated without a theme, allowing artists the creative freedom to display work that is reflective of their own experiences, personal inspirations and interests.

The Makings of a Master: Kentucky Folk Art Videos

Kentucky is filled with folk traditions, old and new, from basket makers and banjo players to dancers and drummers. Explore the relationships between master folk artists and their apprentices and the culture they share through art, video interviews, live concerts and demonstrations. This exhibit celebrates over 20 years of apprenticeships funded and documented by the Kentucky Arts Council.

Ways of Seeing | Exhibit

Artists have long explored the depths of their imagination in their artwork, presenting a fantastical version of the world we know. The artists in Ways of Seeing imagine an alternate reality by exploring the unknown or by re-envisioning the known world. Join us as this group of 19 Kentucky artists, participants in the Kentucky Crafted program and the Al Smith Individual Artists Fellowship recipients, shows us a different way of seeing.
