Traveling exhibit to highlight artwork by military veterans
By By Tom Musgrave
Frankfort, KY - Military veterans may have put down their rifles, but the Kentucky Arts Council is asking them to pick up their brushes, pencils and other art tools to participate in an exhibit that features and honors their service.
The arts council seeks artwork from veterans and their spouses and children for The Kentucky Veteran Project Exhibit. The application deadline for the exhibit is Oct. 5. The exhibit will be on display Nov. 5-28, in the Capitol Rotunda in Frankfort, before embarking on a yearlong statewide tour in December.
"In the past year, we have been working with the Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs, as well as the nonprofit organization Dancing Well: The Soldier Project, to support and highlight the healing process combat veterans undergo through artistic expression," said Chris Cathers, arts council interim executive director. "This exhibit was a natural byproduct of those discussions. Opening it in November ahead of Veterans Day seems appropriate, and provides another opportunity to honor the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform.
"We look forward to seeing the creative output of Kentucky's veterans."
As part of its tour around the state, The Kentucky Veteran Project Exhibit will be on display at The Kentucky Crafted Market, March 15-17, at the Kentucky Horse Park's Alltech Arena in Lexington.
To apply for the exhibit, or for more information, read The Kentucky Veteran Project Exhibit prospectus on the arts council website or contact Dave Blevins, arts council arts marketing director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 502-892-3120.
