The NEA Our Town grant program, Appalshop and the City of Jenkins, Kentucky joined in working with regional and national artists as well as community members to produce permanent and temporary public art while also conducting innovative arts programming that fosters community interaction. The project “A City Built on Coal: Jenkins, Kentucky” builds upon the celebration of the Jenkins Centennial (1912 –2012) and includes development and launching of a media-rich walking/driving tour that highlights the historic industrial architecture and unique stories of the birth, life, and death of an American coalmining town and its sense of itself as part of a future beyond coal.
This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional project funding from Appalshop Production & Education Fund; Kentucky Arts Council; The Educational Foundation of America; and ArtPlace America.
