The local arts scene just grew, as the city of Springfield is on the receiving end of an art donation in the form of $7,000.

“The city will begin work immediately to procure a local artist for the artwork that will be displayed in the Washington County Judicial Center, and (it) should be a wonderful addition to that facility and a way to showcase the abundance of talent that we do have here,” Laurie Smith, city administrator, said.
Smith said the city received the $7,000 donation via Endow Kentucky, a Louisville-based foundation. The individual donor, she said, requested to remain anonymous.
She said local officials are anxious to see the project completed.
“It’s another way for our community to lay the groundwork in proving that the talent here is ‘second to none,’” she said via email on Monday night.
