Open January 19th - Horsing Around With Art (HAWA)
Each year, the Kentucky Derby Museum asks Louisville Metro students in grades 1-12 to illustrate their perspective of “The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports” through our juried competition “Horsing Around with Art: A Student’s View of the Sport of Kings”. Winning students can earn prizes and high quality art supplies along with money for their schools’ art departments. The Kentucky Derby Museum will donate a total of $6,400 to Louisville Metro schools in the 2014-15 competition.
The Grand Prize Winning art work is selected by the President of Churchill Downs. Six box tickets to the upcoming Kentucky Derby are awarded to the winning student, as well as $500 for the school’s art department. The box tickets are provided by Churchill Downs. The winning artwork will be framed and displayed at the Kentucky Derby Museum for one year and then returned to the student.
Horsing Around With Art will be on display in the Matt Winn Gallery, located on the second floor of the Kentucky Derby Museum, from January 19 – February 15, 2015.
