An opportunity is available to Kentucky architectural artists to be included in a statewide artist directory. Applications are invited from artists who have an established history of work in design-oriented or architectural installations and projects. The purpose of this program is to promote exemplary artists whose work includes architectural elements, custom-made fixtures, uniquely crafted building materials and design elements.
-Provide focused marketing for artists selected for the directory.
-Encourage the growth of the market for architectural artists and increase the visibility of the field.
The Architectural Artists Directory is an adjudicated directory of Kentucky artists who have an established history of working on special architectural or design-oriented projects and installations. The directory is intended for use by homebuilders, architects, interior designers, landscape architects and private clients as a resource for identifying artists who have the capacity to create unique products to the clients’ specifications.
This program is intended for artwork that is an integral part of a room, building, outdoor space or other structure.
Examples of products may include (but are not limited to):
-Door knobs and door handles
-Environmental Graphics (visual art customized for the design or dimensions of a room or building)
-Large scale art for public spaces
-Garden and outdoor fixtures and amenities
The Kentucky Arts Council will offer the following support to ensure the program standards and goals are met:
-Representation on the arts council website via the Architectural Artists Directory which may be accessed at http://artistdirectory.ky.gov/Pages/ArchitecturalArtistDirectory.aspx.
-Access to the Kentucky Peer Advisory Network (KPAN), which provides consultation in specific professional areas.
-Introduction to marketing appearances such as Kentucky Crafted: The Market.
-Inclusion in listings and referrals to home builders, galleries, individual clients, state agencies and the news media.
