Lexington, KY Drastically Increases Participation
Only in their third year with the National Arts Program®, Lexington, KY managed to dramatically increase not only their participation, but the number of pieces on display.
Compared to their 2009 exhibition, they increased their participation by 62% and the number of pieces by 67%. These are truly amazing statistics! The exhibition presented more than 170 pieces of artwork by 99 artists to the public. The show was once again held at ArtPlace, which houses a number of arts organizations including the Lexington Ballet, Lexington Philharmonic and Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra, just to name a few. Coordinator Penny Ebel commented, “it is the perfect venue for our exhibit because of the many activities that take place in the building which allow many people to see the exhibit!”
Congrats to Lexington on a great third year!
