2011:WEG's Surprising Sequel, Theater Flourishes
The World Equestrian Games attracted international artistic talent to the Bluegrass, but, Rich Copley of the Lexington Herald Leader says such quality continued in 2011. Midori, Itzhak Perlman, and the Boston Pops all traveled to Lexington. Also, in 2011, theater flourished with numerous new companies building momentum. Also, for the first time in decades a new arts venue went on line when the Eastern Kentucky University Center for the Arts opened last fall.
