Bernheim Artist Apparel Limited Edition Series WINNERS
In 2020, in honor of the 40th anniversary of Bernheim’s Artist in Residence program and the value that art brings to the natural environment, Bernheim invited creatives from Kentucky’s artist and design community to submit image designs honoring the organization’s mission of connecting people with nature. Forty two Kentucky-based artists and designers submitted designs that addressed the unique aspects of Bernheim’s history, geography and wildlife, on-site attractions, nature-based educational programming and art in the landscape.
Designs are featured on Bella + Canvas t-shirts manufactured through environmental and eco-friendly practices in the USA, with inks made in Louisville, and screen printed at Print My Threads in Flatwoods, KY where solar panels generate most of their electricity.
Congratulations to Alexis (STIX) Brown from Radcliff and Tara (Remi) Remington from Louisville for their winning designs that interpret Bernheim’s mission of connecting people with nature from unique perspectives. T-shirts are now available for purchase in our Gift Shop.
