Building a Community of Artist Entrepreneurs application


Click on the above links for information and applications for this exciting new program which will pair established artists with emerging artists.  The program is made possible by a grant through the Louisville Fund for the Arts and LG&E.

Grant to fund mentoring program received

We’re happy to announce the Arts Commission has been awarded one of only 15 grants given by the ArtsMatch program of the Louisville Fund for the Arts through the generous support of LG&E and the Jennifer Lawrence Fund. The 15 recipients are from across Kentucky and will offer a variety of unique arts programs.

Our program will match arts mentors with apprentices to create five teams for immersion in the study of their respective areas of interest and to develop skills necessary for growing a successful arts business in our community. This concept was submitted for consideration as part of our effort to build artists and the arts so that each person can participate however they aspire—personally and professionally!

You can be an everyday hero by helping ArtsMatch
to make it happen.
Your donation will be matched, $1 for $1!

What an impact that will make!

…and when you donate on line,
the Fund for the Arts will cover
the card fee. We’ll get every dollar
you donate, plus the matching funds,
until May 31.

You can also give by check.

Community Impact Award

The Arts Commission of Danville/Boyle County is the proud recipient of  the 2013  “Community Impact Award” given by The Chamber at their Annual Celebration.

The award, first presented at The Chamber’s 2008 event, is bestowed on either an individual or organization who has responded to an identified need and has initiated actions, affecting people in the community in significant or profound ways. The criteria for the award state that the efforts must not have been made for personal gain or notoriety.

Needless to say, we are proud that our efforts have been recognized by leaders in our community. Our thanks go to our sponsors, to all our members, and to the directors of our board for their support. You have made this achievement possible. That said, we must recognize the efforts of Ann Nichols, immediate past executive director, who deftly orchestrated this organization with diligence and finesse during her 11 year tenure.
