fresh ART and silent ART Applications Due Saturday!
Deadline Sat., Aug 3
It is our desire to inspire people to love art, to learn art, to collect art and to create art.

The deadline to apply to participate in fresh ART is fast approaching. Applications must be submitted by Aug. 3 or preferably earlier.

Selected artists will spend September 13 and/or 14 in Covington’s Devou Park creating original works to be auctioned live at the gala. A portion of the sale price of each auctioned piece will go to the artist; the balance will be donated to the museum, benefiting area children. Artwork will be judged by a panel of experts, with $1000 in cash prizes awarded to the top three entries by the William & Patricia Applegarth Fund.

Artists who are unable to participate in fresh ART are encouraged to submit artwork previously created within the past 12 months for a silent ART auction. silent ART opens for bidding at the museum with an artists’ reception from 5-7 p.m., Saturday, August 31, and continues through September 14. A portion of the purchase price of silent ART auction items will be donated to the museum’s youth education programs.
Artists may apply to participate in either fresh ART or silent ART, but not both. Interested artists aged 18 and older should contact the museum at (859) 491-4003 and/or download the application forms HERE.
