Carnegie Awarded $20,000 from State Tourism Department


The Carnegie was awarded a second grant from the Kentucky Department of Tourism valued at $20,000.

The money will be used for the 2019-20 theatre season. 

The Covington-based arts center previously was awarded $18,000 from the state agency.

“We’re so grateful for the support of the Kentucky Department of Tourism,” said Kim Best, executive director of The Carnegie. “The Carnegie is Northern Kentucky’s only multi-disciplinary arts venue, and we are dedicated to producing high-quality programming for our patrons. These funds will help us reach new audiences throughout the region to support a Kentucky cultural icon.”

The Carnegie's season begins August 10 with the opening of the Green Day musical American Idiot.

The Local Tourism Grant Program was established in the 2018-20 State Biennium Budget for the purpose of supporting local theater programs and museums in order to promote tourism in the Commonwealth.
