A Message from the Governor's School for the Arts

Architecture Program added in 2003...

Past Support Appreciated; Continuing Support Needed!

AIA Kentucky, thank you for your support of The Kentucky Center Governor’s School for the Arts (GSA) architecture program!

In 2003, GSA added architecture to a list of seven performing and visual arts offered during the three-week summer residency for high school junior and seniors.

About the GSA architecture program…

GSA’s Architecture program introduces students to the theories and professions of architecture and encourages the process of creative and analytical thought. The goal of the program is to provide the framework by which students can envision, design and create their own models of places for people to live, work, shop, learn, worship, relax, play or entertain.. Through lectures, studio problems, walking tours and field trips, students are introduced to practical field techniques employed in the recording of historical buildings and to the study of interior and exterior spaces.

You can help!

GSA needs your support now more than ever. With decreased operating support, GSA must identify supporters in the field of architecture to preserve a program that is identifying and training the next generation of Kentucky architects!

For more information on how you can support GSA architecture, please contact Mary Carr, GSA Development Officer, at 859-281-3576.  Thank you again, AIA!
