LexArts Hop

LexArts Hop is Friday, April 18 from 5 to 8 pm.

The event is a self-guided tour of the visual arts in downtown Lexington, KY. Patrons begin at any location and visit as many or as few participating venues as they would like. Each site presents an exciting new exhibit for each Hop and, thanks to the generosity of many, admission is always free.

Along the Hop, patrons are also able to board the Trolley and travel to their next stop, free of charge, courtesy of LexTran. Trolley stops are marked on the map in this brochure.

WUKY Spring Pledge Drive 2014

Dear Listeners and Friends,

Thank you for your pledge of support for WUKY during our Spring Pledge Drive.  We came in only $3,000 short of our $80,000 goal.  With increased programming costs and tighter budgets, your support is more important than ever! WUKY relies on member contributions, like yours, that allow us to maintain the quality, strength and editorial independence you count on daily.

I'd like to give a very special "Thank You" to our High Fidelity Club members that provide WUKY with a stable source of income on a monthly basis.  Without your continued support, we would be solely dependent upon our pledge drives.  As the membership for this club continues to grow we anticipate less on-air fundraising and enhanced programming that you have come to depend on.  

If you didn't get a chance to pledge during our Spring Pledge Drive it's not too late to make your tax-deductible contribution today!

Thank you for your kind support!


Robert T. Hansel
Membership Manager
