Campbellsville University and Taylor County Public Library are partnering with the Kentucky Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts for this special event - The Makings of a Master Art Exhibit. 

The Makings of a Master is a traveling exhibit that explores relationships between master folk artists and their apprentices. Every day, folk communities across Kentucky practice living traditions that are vitally important to their cultural identity. Whether they are musicians, dancers, storytellers or craft artists, all communities have their masters — those who are considered the most excellent representatives of their folk art. This will be the first time that the Kentucky Arts Council will offer an exhibit in multiple locations, making this an exciting way to expose an entire city to Kentucky folk art. Campbellsville University is the second post-secondary institution to host the exhibit.
