Mission Statement

“The Mission of The Art Village, Inc is to support the community through arts inspiration, exhibitions and outreach.

 The Board of Directors of The Art Village has set forth a broad Vision for the organization that includes:

• To provide a supportive and inspiring environment for the creation of art and the support of artists of all ages and abilities.

• To encourage a cultural and social gathering in the community.

As a community-focused arts organization, we provide an opportunity for individuals to engage in creating and learning about art. Local and visiting artists exhibit a variety of media and techniques. Young artists gain exposure by displaying their work and learning about the business side of being an artist.

 The Art Village encourages art in the community by supporting Kentucky artists in various events. Such as Art in the Park where Kentucky artists showcase in a non-juried format and all forms of art and craft. Although our main goal is to support many different forms of art, we additionally encourage community involvement and participation. The Art Village sees art as an opportunity for various groups to work together for the benefit of the entire community.”

Background Statement

The purpose of the corporation is to promote, enhance and contribute to the educational, artistic and cultural lives of those living in Kentucky and Woodford County specifically; and serve as a resource and supportive agency for individuals and organizations that positively affect or alter the cultural climate of the community.

The Art Village, Inc founded in 2010 as a organization with the desire to promote and support Woodford Co. artist and aid local schools. We provided art supplies to artists and schools. We taught art classes in a wide variety of mediums. We wrote lesson plans for teachers in all areas of the curriculum so that art could be used to teach math, science, social studies, etc.

We also promoted community recycling. We would take clean used items and make them usable to as art supplies. In 2012, we produced statues from pop can and created a "jungle gym" from 2 liter bottles. These lessons were created so science teachers could teach mass and weigh lessons. We were starting to teach the community that recycling can be fun and useful.

While these programs were catching on, as a young organization starting in an economically hard time we found it very difficult to get funding for our mission. So we have had to narrow our focus until we can get a stronger foundation and a larger community support.

We have not lost our goal to promote art in the school systems. Though events like Art in the Park and art walks, we provide students from all mediums of art to perform, present and sell they work.

We have stayed in "business" though the tough times and with our 7th annual event fast approaching we continue grow. In 2010, the 1st event hosted 20 artists/exhibitors. In 2015 we have 54 from all over Kentucky.

 
Impact Statement

The Art Village's biggest impact is getting communities to understand the importance of encouraging students in all creative fields.  Our reach to artists (young and old) has grown from Woodford Co artists to all of Kentucky.

The Art Village has impacted the community by building an event that is so strong that the community has attached other events and activities to Art in the Park (AIP).  Last year Uniquely Woodford Co. brought together two of its biggest art events (Francisco Farm and AIP) to the same weekend.  This was such a community draw that the county Theater put on a special show that weekend, merchants (normally closed) opened on weekend.   This brought over 10,000 visitors to Woodford Co.

This year Art in the Park (our major art event) has partnered with Versailles Merchant Assoc.  to bring out our community and surrounding community to enjoy a weekend of family fun.  From a block party on Friday and Art in the Park on Saturday.  

Another of our event that has impacted our community is the Art Walks have drawn artist from all over central Kentucky.  We work to put this event on in the fall of the year and work to have this as a kick off to the holidays.

Needs Statement
The Art Village most pressing need is financial.   In order to assist in getting the information about art and artist out to our communities in central Kentucky we need funds for advertising and campaigning for art events. 
 
Second need is community involvement with The Art Village.  People who are active in all areas of business who can assist with planning and producing events.  The events we can sponsor is limited by the number of community members involved in our organization.
