Students are invited to be part of the Governor’s Derby Celebration by contributing a painted canvas for the tables on the grounds of the Old State Capitol during the festivities. Tables will be decorated as horses, with a head and a tail affixed to each table, and the painted canvases will be used as horse blankets and draped across the tables.

Schools must use their own materials and supplies to complete the paintings and are responsible for mailing completed canvases to the council. The Kentucky Arts Council will select which canvases to display.

The entry deadline is April 23. Email Jean St. John or call her at (888) 833-2787 for more information.
