Support Appalshop at 50

Our 50th year starts this September!

/ 150


We've built the largest single body of creative work about Appalachia!

From a Library of Congress 50th Symposium to Speed Cinema events in Kentucky's largest art museum throughout 2019, Appalshop's 50th Anniversary celebration is off to a beautiful start. Appalshop family and five decades worth of artistic partnerships are coming together to make this Golden Anniversary one that touches as many places and people as possible. We're sure to be celebrating near you over the next year or two! In April 2019, Appalshop artists, staff, former staff, donors, funders, and friends celebrate our 50th year in New York City and Boston, MA, as a 2019 Atlantic Renewal Award Finalist.

We launch our 50th Anniversary on our birthday this September! Check out all things Appalshop 50th at Read about our ongoing celebrations here, host an Appalshop 50th celebration where you live, plan a legacy gift, or take your Appalshop seat.

Our biggest Kentucky celebrations will take place in Lexington and Whitesburg in 2020. Save these dates!
