The Jack Lunt Memorial Juried Art Exhibition began in 1987 as a collaboration between southcentral Kentucky philanthropist, Jerry E. Baker and the Capital Arts Alliance. For twenty-two years, the show was exhibited in the Capital Arts Center Houchens Gallery and included a wide variety of pieces from artists throughout the region. The Downing Museum is proud to host the 23rd annual exhibition and welcomes artists to submit pieces in honor of the late Jack Lunt.
