From the Kentucky Arts Council:
" On Feb. 20, arts leaders came from across the Commonwealth to celebrate the public value of the arts and to thank legislators for their continued support of the Kentucky Arts Council. Checks were presented to organizations awarded Kentucky Arts Partnership operational support grants by the arts council in July 2017.
Representatives of Louisville arts organizations gathered Feb. 20 in Frankfort for Arts Day in Kentucky, an annual meeting that fosters discussions in the Commonwealth’s arts community about the state of the arts industry in Kentucky. The day is also an opportunity for arts leaders to thank members of the Kentucky General Assembly for their continued support of arts funding through the Kentucky Arts Council.
Louisville’s 26 Kentucky Arts Partnership (KAP) organizations received a combined $473,451 in grant awards. The funds were awarded by the arts council in July 2017 through the KAP program. The funding is part of $1.2 million the arts council awarded to 93 nonprofit arts organizations across the state for the 2018 fiscal year.
KAP grants provide operating support on a competitive basis to arts and cultural organizations and community arts programs to ensure participation in the arts is available to the people of Kentucky.
