To Everyone Who Loves the Kentucky Derby

Thank you to all 217 students who submitted amazing, heartfelt artwork and to WinStar Farm for sponsoring the “Horsing Around With Art” exhibit. Your creativity helps us remember and celebrate the extraordinary experience that is the Kentucky Derby.



A student art competition for Louisville Metro students to showcase their talents and celebrate the Kentucky Derby experience!

Presenting Sponsor for Horsing Around With Art 2019-2020:

Kentucky Derby Museum's 2020 grand prize winner of the Horsing Around With Art competition, presented by WinStar Farm, is a senior at Mercy Academy. Anna Federico, a twelfth grader, was surprised with a dozen red roses in class, and six box seat tickets to the 2020 Kentucky Derby. Her artwork will also be displayed for a year in the Kentucky Derby Museum.

Students from grades 1-12 in Louisville Metro public and private schools were eligible to send in their artwork to the contest. This year, the Kentucky Derby Museum gave out more than 75 awards for the contest, from eight main awards such as the Thoroughbred Award and the WinStar Award, all the way to divisional award winners and honorable mentions.
