Magoffin County High School Advanced Art class creates Derby Blanket for the 2013 Kentucky Derby Picnic.

Derby Blanket

The Magoffin County High School Advanced Art class designed and painted a "Derby Blanket" for the 2013 Kentucky Derby Picnic.  All Kentucky schools were invited to participate, and canvases were provided by the Kentucky Arts Council.  Final products were submitted for approval in April and finalists were chosen and notified in the first week of May.

Each table on the Old State Capitol grounds is fitted with a horse head and tail. The painted canvases, or "Derby blankets," are draped across the table to complete the look. This is the fourth year schools have been invited to participate in the celebration. The Governor's Derby Celebration was held May 4 in downtown Frankfort.
