Register now for July Interview with Artist Mark Lenn Johnson
Join the Kentucky Arts Council at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 27, for the “Celebrating the Art & Culture of Kentucky: Some of the Bluegrass is Black” interview series featuring this month’s conversation with Kentucky glass artist and painter Mark Lenn Johnson and series host Dr. Shauna M. Morgan.
Johnson, an internationally recognized glass artist and abstract painter who grew up in Lexington and has a background in economic development, is president of Art Inc. Kentucky, a non-profit business and marketing incubator serving Kentucky artists and operated through Community Ventures. Read more about his life and work in the arts on the arts council’s website.
“Celebrating the Art & Culture of Kentucky: Some of the Bluegrass is Black” is part artist talk, part personal interview, and combines personal perspectives of the artist’s work, and meaningful conversations with both professional and emerging Black artists in the Commonwealth. The series is hosted by Dr. Morgan and will feature a monthly interview with a Kentucky artist. The June interview featured former Kentucky Poet Laureate and multi-disciplinary artist Frank X Walker. That interview is archived on the arts council’s You Tube channel.
The event is free and will be hosted on Zoom and stream live on the arts council’s Facebook page. Registration is required.
Visit the Kentucky Arts Council’s website for more information about the series and bios of the host and artists.

This series is supported through a grant from the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation.
