Republic Bank First Friday Hop Award for Surrealism at the Kentucky State Fair

Republic Bank First Friday Hop is proud to bring Surrealism to the Kentucky State again this year. The $50 Best of Award for Surrealism will be granted to the single best example of surrealism among all works of art submitted to the state fair in 2019 including 2d and 3d works.  

What is Surrealism?  Surrealism aims to express imaginative dream-like and creative visions or ideas that are not abstract or obscured in style but very realistically rendered without being bound by real world limitations or requirements or reality. Some of the most famous examples of surrealism include Salvador Dali’s photo perfect portraits with absurd proportions or unusually melty objects in otherwise normal and convincing landscapes.
