His lifelong commitment to and achievement in the arts was recognized with a 2015 Governor’s Award in the Arts in the National category.

“It’s been my special privilege these past eight years to bestow this honor on many deserving artists and friends of the arts in Kentucky, and these honorees continue that fine tradition,” Beshear said. “It is especially poignant to do so in this, the 50th anniversary year of the Kentucky Arts Council. Looking back through the history of the Governor’s Awards winners, you can see many outstanding examples of the high level of art in Kentucky.”
