Selected Winners of Musical Inspirations Art Contest to Debut at Gheens Foundation Great Expectations Concert

Selected Winners of Musical Inspirations Art Contest to Debut at Gheens Foundation Great Expectations ConcertWinners have been announced for the unique Musical Inspirations Art Contest, hosted by The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts and Louisville Orchestra. The selected winners' pieces will make their public debut at the Gheens Foundation Great Expectations concert on February 7. The prizewinning art work will be projected onto large screens while the Louisville Orchestra and the Louisville Youth Orchestra combine forces to perform the music that inspired their art: the complete Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky.

Pieces were selected by a blind judging committee comprised of three panelists, including two arts curriculum specialists with 50 years combined experience teaching visual art and a professional visual artist/professional musician. Each winning piece was inspired by one of five provided movements from Pictures at an Exhibition.

Each of the five First Prize Winners will receive a $50 gift certificate to Preston Art Center and four copies of the exhibit catalog. The winning artworks and honorable mention pieces will be exhibited at The Kentucky Center along with a reception in the Mary Anderson Room following the concert.
