Kentucky Artists Submit Works to Exhibit at the State Capitol

The Beshears believe there is no better place for the voices of Kentuckians to be represented through art than in the Capitol.

FRANKFORT, Ky. – Kentucky artists are invited to submit their work for a possible exhibition at the State Capitol.

Selected artwork will be on display for six months in the Capitol’s two main halls and the Team Kentucky Digital Art Gallery before being returned to artists, a statement from Governor Andy Beshear said.

Governor Beshear and First Lady Beshear believe there is no better place for the voices of Kentuckians to be represented through art than on Capitol Hill.

The deadline for submitting works for the Fall 2022 exhibition is June 3, and pieces will be on display from July 1 through December 31. The rotation of works currently on display ends on June 30.

This will be the third rotation of artwork featuring Kentucky artists at the Capitol. The project was started last year as a way to express Kentucky pride and connect through art during the coronavirus pandemic.
