UK Students to Present Harlan County Arts Center Designs

Published: Dec 11, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 11, 2012) — The third-year students in the University of Kentucky School of Interior Design will host an exhibition of their proposed designs for an arts center and performance venue in Harlan County from 5-8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13, at Awesome Inc., located in downtown Lexington.

 

Organized by College of Design instructor Rebekah Ison, the exhibition will feature the proposals for the conversion of an abandoned furniture store into an art and community center. The center will include a performance space, gallery, coffee shop, three studio classrooms, as well as an apartment for visiting artists. 

 

The students also provided designs for a series of plays and exhibitions set to occur throughout Harlan in October 2013. The studio explored programming and branding techniques designed to meet the needs of the community based on their research.

 

To see documentation of the UK students' ongoing work visit their Tumblr blog at http://theharlanstudio.tumblr.com.

 

Work on the new arts center is expected to begin summer 2013.
