This year, each recipient was presented dulcimers made by nationally acclaimed musician and craftsman Homer Ledford. The presentations were made in the Capitol Rotunda and marked the 25th anniversary of the Governor’s Awards in the Arts including the distinguished B. Hudson Milner Award.
“This anniversary is a testament to the hard work, generous giving and strong commitment that give fuel to the arts in Kentucky today,” said Gov. Paul E. Patton.
Boyd received the Community Arts (Individual) Award. Other award winners were: Donna S.
