The employees of Hilliard Lyons are pleased and honored that the firm has been named the Kentucky Arts Council’s Business recipient of the Governor’s Award in the Arts, the Commonwealth’s highest honor in the arts.
 
The Award honors a Kentucky business or businessperson for outstanding support of the arts. In announcing the award, the Arts Council noted that Hilliard Lyons is a generous and long-time patron of virtually every arts organization in the region. For example, Hilliard Lyons supports the Louisville Orchestra, Actors Theatre of Louisville and the Kentucky Opera and sponsors numerous arts events. The firm also provides the volunteer leadership of its employees on governing boards of the community’s arts organizations.
 
“Hilliard Lyons enhances the quality of life and furthers the economic development of the region through its support of the arts,” the Council noted.
 
The Governor’s Awards in the Arts are presented in nine different categories and this year’s winners will be honored by Gov. Steve Beshear at a public ceremony and celebration in October, in the Capitol Rotunda, Frankfort.
 
"I am pleased to recognize this group of organizations and citizens who believe in the power of the arts," Gov. Beshear said in a statement this week. "Their contributions have been generous and their achievements extraordinary."
