New Website Launches to Guide NKY Arts Events, Opportunities
The Public Arts Network of Northern Kentucky launched a new comprehensive calendar at www.NKYArtQuest.com.
Jill Morenz, director of Community Initiatives and Communications at the Catalytic Fund, and who runs the Public Arts Network, said that she is excited to offer this service to the community.
“We hope that people will come to NKYArtQuest.com to plan their weekends and nights out,” she said.
The website has a feature section called NKY Arts This Weekend, which highlights three of the events and displays the calendar for the upcoming weekend.
Sarah Allan, program director at the Center for Great Neighborhoods, said that she thinks this is very helpful.
“Right now there are so many great art events happening throughout Northern Kentucky that I often end up missing something because I find out about it after the fact. NKYArtQuest.com gathers all these events in one place so there’s no reason to miss anything,” Allen said.
NKYArtQuest.com showcases art classes and workshops and shows, as well as live music, theater, tours and festivals. If local organizations have an event they would like to get on the calendar, they can submit it from the NKYArtQuest.com page. Community members can also sign up for weekly emails to stay in the know.
Renaissance Covington Executive Director Nick Wade, a member of the Public Arts Network, applauded the collaborative nature of the new website.
“When we work together as a region, we strengthen our impact. The regional approach of NKYArtQuest.com is a great way to showcase Northern Kentucky and the powerhouse we are,” Wade said.
Baker Hunt Art & Cultural Center Executive Director Karen Etling also said that she would promote all her organization's events at the site noting, “our vibrant and growing art community that enhances the lives of everyone it touches.”
