Brief Description

In commissioning these new artworks, the committee seeks to re-imagine the challenge taken up by O'Hanlon in 1934: to depict Kentucky's evolution from a frontier state to modern Commonwealth. Contemporary artists may interpret the complex realities of Kentucky and the United States today. We seek works which can engage issues of history, race, identity, culture, and diversity; exemplify a strong concept and skillful use of materials; and contribute to an inclusive educational environment.
