2017 is a banner year for the US Bank Celebration of the Arts as it observes its 30th anniversary! The show continues to be a strong and active presence in south central Kentucky serving the artists and art lovers of the region. Mark your calendars for March 4rd - April 8th and don’t miss this fine opportunity to see some great art!


For many years, Celebration of the Arts was shown in the bank’s downtown location in Bowling Green with Western Kentucky University’s Visual Art Department organizing the show. Regional artists could display their work without going through a selection process. The exhibit also generated funds for student scholarships. In 2004 the Kentucky Museum began to collaborate with the Art Department and the exhibit moved to Western’s campus.


The first year, the museum sponsored a Purchase Award and has continued the tradition each year. A special showing of these 13 pieces of art that has become an important part of the museum’s collection is being planned.


We invited artists, their families and the community to the Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony which will be held March 3rd from 6:00-8:00pm with awards given at 7:00. Don’t miss this event – it’s always a good time and admission is free.
