Interconnected exhibit highlights Kentucky’s diversity

BOWLING GREEN Ky.-The Downing Museum in Bowling Green recently introduced a new exhibit, one that emphasizes culture.

The Interconnected exhibit highlights 17 artists and 18 works of art. The purpose of the exhibit is to highlight Kentucky’s diverse community and the artist’s connection to the world and each other.

This exhibit was created to coincide with the National Basketry Organization’s 10th Biennial Conference at WKU

Downing Museum director Jack Lesieur said art is a great way to connect the different cultures.

“I’m a big fan of diversity, especially in art. I think art should be for everybody. This kind of helps to show that our community has such diversity in our art and it’s nice to see all that come together,” Lesieur said.

The Interconnected exhibit will remain on display until Sept. 7.
