Artists from local Kentucky high schools and across the globe will be featured at the Kentucky International Youth Arts Competition "Nature & People." The competition and exhibit will kick off with a special reception from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 14, at the Morehead State's Kentucky Folk Arts Center. It will run until Jan. 8, 2024.

The Kentucky Folk Arts Center operates from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Admission is free and open to the public.

Located in the historic Union Grocery near the campus of Morehead State University, the KFAC offers much more than a typical museum experience. It houses a permanent collection of nearly 1,400 pieces of self-taught art. Dozens of works from the collection are displayed on a rotating basis in the center’s first-floor gallery.

The center presents several new changing exhibits each year in the second-floor gallery, featuring folk art, fine art, textiles, photography, and historical content. KFAC also boasts one of the best gift shops in the region, offering original folk art, crafts, jewelry, books, toys, housewares, and much more.
