Review for The Kentuck Museum Association, Inc., Northport, AL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been involved with this organization for more than 35 years. It started out as an arts and crafts festival with a focus on undiscovered folk artists. It evolved to be one of the premier arts and craft events in the country. But wait there's more. We've grown to be a community arts organization that provides work spaces for artists and crafts persons, supports art classes both on its campus and in the local schools, has a monthly event that brings the community together for fun, food, and music while viewing the arts and crafts, provides museum space with new exhibtors each month, and has a gift shop with many unique items. We just completed a capital campaign which renovated our historic headquarters. We have a full time director who while being a great artist is also a great fund raiser, manager, and shepherd of our resources. She works with a full time staff of four who bring many talents to this great group. The heart of the organization is the community volunteers. It's this group that I've most enjoyed over the years.

An organization can only remain vital if it brings in new people. I encourage you to come visit us and see if you might be interested in the work we do. Oh, yeah, your tax deductible contributions would also be a big help. Thanks
