Kentucky State Fair Digital Art Competition

Graphic Arts, Development, Programing and Design take the stage for the new DESIGN WEB DIGITAL AND INTERACTIVE ART division at the Kentucky State Fair Art Show! This years state fair will feature art from game developers, programers, graphic designers and aspiring creative STEAM and STEM program student work. Please join us in participating or supporting this great new program!

The Kentucky State Fair has been running continuously for over 115 years featuring the best of what Louisville has to offer including agriculture, culinary, fine art and traditional crafts.  This year the Kentucky State Fair has added a new division to include one of Kentucky’s newest rising divisions of economic development with a focus on PROGRAMMING and DIGITAL ARTS. According to Code Louisville, every 90 days, there are about 100 unfilled junior software development opportunities open in the greater Louisville area, and those numbers are growing fast. The Fair was created to showcase the best of Kentucky and that is rapidly becoming a tech savvy community of students who are learning how to incorporate software development and computational thinking into everyday needs.

Students and professionals can compete or simply submit works to be included in the show by signing up with the Kentucky State Fair. There are categories for all ages and stages of skill and all are welcome to submit work. Work will be on display and open to the public from AUG 15 through the 25th at the Kentucky Expo in the Art Department of the Kentucky State Fair with special demonstrations and opportunities to play and enjoy the interactive art, games, programs and websites throughout the week.
