Thanks to our generous grantors and sponsors:

The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, provides operating support to the Carnegie Center with state tax dollars and federal funding from the National Endowment for Arts.



All Carnegie Center programs are made possible through the generous support of LexArts. In 2019-20, the Carnegie Center received a total of $12,000 in unrestricted support.




We hope to see you soon at the Carnegie Center, home to the Kentucky Writers Hall of Fame and writers and readers of all levels.
