This summer, The Kentucky Center hosted over two hundred eager young artists from every region of the Commonwealth, as The Kentucky Center Governor's School for the Arts (GSA) took place at Lexington's Transylvania University from June 17 to July 7. During their three-week stay, 225 student artists from 43 counties were immersed in a rigorous schedule of daily seminars, master-classes, lectures, hands-on workshops and field trips to regional arts attractions.

Instruction was offered in nine disciplines:  Architecture, Creative Writing, Dance, Drama, Instrumental Music, Musical Theatre, New Media, Visual Art and Vocal Music. Since 1987, more than 4,500 talented high school sophomores and juniors have attended the GSA summer program.  The program concluded on July 7 with an all-day festival that celebrated the achievements of Kentucky's young artists.

Additionally, twenty-one colleges and universities currently offer scholarships to alumni of GSA.Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, GSA is a public/private partnership inaugurated in 1987 by The Kentucky Center, the Commonwealth of Kentucky and numerous private supporters. Today, the vital funding required to make GSA a reality is provided by the state through the leadership of the Governor's Office and the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet, as well as The Kentucky Center Endowment Fund, Toyota Motor Manufacturing and more than 300 corporations, parents, educators, alumni and friends of GSA.
