The goal of The Lexington Art Infusion is to create and place artworks in community centers and public service buildings across Lexington / Fayette County, KY. The improvements will create a more inviting and richer experience for the individuals and families that the centers serve.
Artists will be provided 24 in x 24 in canvas or existing artwork can also be donated.
Artists will be provided free admission to a series of professional development workshops LexArts will present including a Framing Workshop that will help frame the donated piece (if framing is needed). Other workshop topics include: Marketing your Art, Ask a CPA (Tax help) and Intellectual Property Rights.
Artists will have the donated work displayed in an exhibit at ArtsPlace for Gallery Hop before it is permanently installed at the center.
Artists will be celebrated at a dedication ceremony when the installation is complete.
