The Frankfort / Franklin County Tourist and Convention Commission recently launched the Frankfort Public Art Tour. The tour was originally developed in 2012 thorough a partnership with local organizations and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, housed on a standalone website. In 2019, funds were allocated to integrate the public art tour into visitfrankfort.com. The updated tour is curated in collaboration with Josephine Sculpture Park and FrankArts – the Franklin County Arts Council.
Frankfort is the state capital of Kentucky and is on track to become the Public Art Capital of Kentucky. It is a community with a rich artistic history and diverse cultural heritage. The Frankfort Public Art Tour invites you to take a deeper look at the Capital City, to come to know its historic architecture, its stained-glass windows, its murals and sculptures, and ultimately its people.
The local organizations that developed the tour include Joanna Hay Productions, Liberty Hall Historic Site, Kentucky State University, the City of Frankfort, Downtown Frankfort Inc., the Kentucky Historical Society, the Kentucky Oral History Commission, The Kings Center, Capital City Museum, Kentucky Division of Historic Properties, and Josephine Sculpture Park.
The Frankfort / Franklin County Tourist and Convention Commission is a destination management organization whose mission is to promote Kentucky’s Capital City to visitors throughout the world.
