Arts Day 2015 is coming up Wednesday, Feb. 11! This year on Arts Day we’re celebrating the Year of the Arts. 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment by executive order of the Kentucky Arts Council, and we want you to help us celebrate in person and with our social media campaign!
All we’re asking you to do, our faithful followers, is take a selfie (you can have someone else take it) and change it to your profile picture on social media.
There are some ground rules, however. We want you to incorporate your medium, discipline or artistic identity in your picture. All you have to do is make a sign with your information included, along with “#kyarts50.”
The arts council staff got in early on the fun to get this big birthday bash started. Here are some examples:
When you change your profile picture, feel free to write a description of your artistic journey, what the arts mean to you, and/or how you came into finding and perfecting your art. It could be about how your artistic identity has made you who you are as a person and an artist. Think of it as a digital diary entry.
We hope you’ll celebrate our 50th with us and show your friends – and the world – why we’re appreciative of the arts in Kentucky, and how the arts and creative industry have helped shape the Commonwealth.
We hope you will join us on Arts Day in Kentucky from 9 a.m. to noon EST on Wednesday, Feb. 11, in the Capitol Rotunda, Frankfort!
