Kentuck Art Center and Festival was established in 1971. Kentuck's mission is to perpetuate the arts, engage the community, and empower the artist. The Kentuck Festival of the Arts is held annually in October, and during that weekend, makes a $5.5 million economic impact on its community.

Did you know #GivingTuesday is December 3rd?

#GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that takes place annually on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. Each year, nonprofits, small businesses, brands, schools, and religious organizations all over the world celebrate the global day of giving.


This year, Kentuck Art Center is participating! We have a goal: raise $1,000 in 24 hours on December 3, 2019. Proceeds from this fundraiser will directly help Kentuck continue to fulfill our mission statement: perpetuate the arts, engage the community, and empower the artist.

Why choose Kentuck on #GivingTuesday?

Our 48th year has marked a lot of growth for us. The Kentuck Festival of the Arts was once again ranked as one of the top arts festivals in the country. In 2019, Kentuck celebrated Alabama’s bicentennial by highlighting Alabama artists in our galleries and at the Festival. Our campus now houses 9 artists’ studios, which hold 12 full-time artists. Our Kentuck Gallery Shop representing the work of nearly 200 artists from across the country is now open 7 days a week and has added an online store. Art Nights boast attendances between 200 and 500 people a month. We are constantly offering new experiences through workshops and exhibitions, as well as new programs, extending our offerings to greater portions of the community. But roofs continue to leak, door knobs break, and air conditioning units and computers continue to bite the dust.


Please continue to help us keep our doors open (literally), dear friends. Your tax-deductible donations make a huge difference in our being able to bring the highest quality art and arts programming in the Southeast.

This year, we have several ways to donate. For the first time ever, Kentuck is participating in #GivingTuesday, an international day of giving. We've set a lofty goal: raise $1,000 in 24 hours on December 3rd, 2019. Donate through our Facebook page, or through our website.


Thank you for your generosity in making Kentuck Art Center & Festival possible. We cannot do it without you.


With deep appreciation,

The Kentuck Staff
