I need your help. Nominate someone today for the 3rd annual James S. Welch Sr. Arts Leadership Award. We are in search of one volunteer whose lifelong commitment and ongoing leadership has made a substantial impact on the Arts community.  This is your opportunity to lift up someone who has been serving in a quiet, unrecognized manner promoting the arts. The nomination form is available by clicking on the image below or by simply going to our home page www.fundforthearts.com and clicking on James Welch Sr. at the top. Many thanks to Stoll Keenon Ogden for sponsoring this award with us.

From Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft’s Storytelling as Craft, to WICKED, to the ballet’s Lady of the Camillias we can hear folks tapping into the arts from every corner of the community. All this tapping has inspired me to give away two tickets to Louisville Orchestra’s Dvorak Symphony No. 7.   That’s right!  Simply sign onto Facebook and tell us the title of your all time favorite story. After all… storytelling IS craft.  One winner will be chosen from all entries at random. Check out this week’s video blog. Am I singin’ or dancin’ in the rain?  Or just wearing some snazzy wellies?
