KSA Founders’ Circle


After nearly two years of planning and development, Spalding University students now have access to broader cultural and artistic activities through the Kentucky School of Art, now located in the formerly vacant Teilhard Hall in the heart of the Spalding campus. The highly qualified KSA staff members have been employed by Spalding University to deliver instruction in these arts-related courses.

This is a pivotal moment for KSA. It is imperative to plan for a vision in the long-term and ensure that KSA will be here for generations to come.  The world has entered a new era in which human imagination, innovation, and creativity are the key to addressing some of our most complex challenges.  KSA was established to educate artists and creative professionals to be responsible contributors to society, with a vision to become an institution with a commitment to prepare graduates who possess the artistic aptitude, creativity, and flexibility to meet such challenges.

To foster this effort, the Kentucky School of Art has created a Founders’ Circle for donors who support the school at the $25,000 level or above over the first 3 years. The Founders’ Circle will ensure that KSA programs will have a successful first three years and will play a key role in guaranteeing KSA’s continued presence and growth.  All Founders’ Circle members will be recognized as such in perpetuity.
