Lebanon is a unique town. With a history of hosting some of the best music artists of the 20th Century and now offering the finest artisan craft distillery in the state, Lebanon is an artist’s paradise in many ways. From the scenic rural landscapes perfect for photographs and paintings to the theatrical acts that take the stage in Angelic Hall, there’s something about this town that gets creative juices flowing.

The Friends of the Library turns the Marion County Public Library into an art gallery once a year that features the work of local artists, including such notables as Mark SelterJama Watts and Bonnie Rawlings Campbell.

New to Lebanon is the Kentucky Classic Arts, an organization that produces events for Angelic Hall and Centre Square such as dance classes, talent shows, musicals and plays.

Marion County is also home to artist Mary Hagy. Hagy’s work has been on exhibit at Actors Theater in Louisville and her work “Night for the Arts” at the Lexington Opera House was winner of the patrons’ choice award at the Lexington Art Leagues’ “Reverse Raffle” auction.
