Several groups of Governor's Scholars Program students visited the museum. These high school students come from all across the state of Kentucky, and attended the five week summer program at Murray State University. Students select "majors" such as music, history, art, astronomy, film studies, anthropology, and communication.
Pictured below are students from the creative writing program. After a tour of the galleries, their professor challenged the students to find a quilt on display to serve as a prompt for a story. You can see them in front of their chosen quilts, writing in their notebooks.
We love seeing which quilts the students selected, and how inspiration travels across art forms.
Student group tours are provided for free through the support of our donors, and can be tailored to many subjects.
