The Kentucky Museum presents a unique art exhibit which is truly a celebration of this region’s art. Anyone over the age of 18 and living within 65 miles of Bowling Green was eligible to enter a piece of their original artwork which will be on exhibit for the entire length of the show. The work was judged and monetary awards given in eight  amateur as well as professional categories.

This year’s show has 171 entries including 54 amateur and 117 professional works. WKU alumni are  represented with 25 entries. Twenty-nine WKU faculty and staff and 23 WKU students have their work on display as well. The remaining 94 works are from artists in Bowling Green and the surrounding community.
