KAEA Burley Coal Region All-State Art Exhibition

Art Exhibition

The Kentucky Arts Education Association (KAEA) Burley Coal Region All-State Art Exhibition is Monday, Feb. 26, to Wednesday, March 6, in the Golding-Yang Art Gallery in the Claypool-Young Art Building.

The show is organized each year in partnership with the Kentucky Art Education Association and features high school artwork from the region.


This exhibition provides a platform for young artists to showcase their creative talents and gain recognition for their work, boosting their confidence and motivation to pursue a career in the arts. Additionally, it fosters a sense of community and appreciation for art, encouraging artistic expression and cultural enrichment among students and the broader community.


The Golding-Yang Art Gallery, located within the Claypool-Young Art Building, is a pivotal educational and cultural component of the Department of Communications, Media, Art & Design, the Caudill College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, the MSU campus and the community at large. The gallery hosts receptions with live music and refreshments, readings and book signings, interdisciplinary events with inter-college and community partnerships, student performances, forums, and workshops. Participatory projects are vital to gallery programming, including live performances and interactive artworks, installations, and mural projects.
