Arts and Culture
The Appalachian region boasts a rich artistic and cultural heritage. The University of Kentucky proudly works with communities to support and promote this legacy both within region and beyond it.
Through programs like the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Fine Arts Program, we work with communities to create a cohesive and dynamic arts culture that is easily accessible to all citizens. Our faculty, staff and students facilitate community-based opportunities in the arts that stimulate creativity, promote participation, and recognize artists, arts educators, and arts supporters at all levels and mediums. We also work with communities to expand opportunities for showcasing their visual, literary, and performing arts and culture to the word.
