2015 Governor’s Derby Exhibit
March 26-May 4, 2015

The Kentucky Arts Council celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, and in honor of this event, we recognize 2015 as the Year of the Arts. For the whole year, we will celebrate the arts in Kentucky, including the annual Governor’s Derby Exhibit, on view in the Capitol Rotunda March 26 through May 4. We asked artists to reflect on the word celebration and to submit work in accordance with the theme.

Enjoy the exhibit, and celebrate the arts in Kentucky with us!
