The US Bank Celebration of the Arts exhibition opened February 29 at the Kentucky Museum and runs until April 17. The exhibition is a showcase of 169 artworks from professional and amateur artists from all over the region.
The art show originated in US Bank’s downtown office several years prior to its current location at the Kentucky Museum. According to Regional President Craig Browning, it had outgrown the facility and needed a new venue large enough to house the growing display of art. With the capacity to hold larger exhibits, Browning approached Kentucky Museum officials about the possibility of taking ownership of Celebration of the Arts. The exhibit has been housed at the Kentucky Museum ever since and remains one of our region’s premiere events showcasing the exceptional artistry alive in our community.
This year, visitors will see art pieces that are divided into eight categories: Painting, Mixed Media, Watercolor, Works on Paper, Fiber Arts, Ceramics and Glass, Sculpture and Photography.
The exhibit is open Tuesday through Saturday, 9am to 4pm, at the Kentucky Museum. For information, call (270) 745-2592.
