Barrels arrive for 2013 Bourbon Barrel Art Project

Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 8.23.13 PMThe barrels have arrived for the 2013 Bourbon Barrel Art Project, the art portion of the 3rd Ever Kentucky State BBQ Festival.

We want to thank Four Roses Bourbon for donating the barrels for this project and auction that raised over $16,000 for Heart of Kentucky United Way last year. We are planning an even bigger event and auction this year.

Here are some photos of the barrels arriving at Ferm Solutions today. Click thumbnails to see larger image.

Anyone wishing to sponsor a barrel for 2013 should contact Bourbon Barrel Art Project Coordinator Susan Hensley at (859) 583-2953.

The 2013 Bourbon Barrel Auction will be held at 8PM, Friday, September 6th at Ferm Solutions, Danville, operators of the Wilderness Trace Distillery. We would like to thank Ferm Solutions and CEP Shane Baker for storing the barrels until we can distribute them to the sponsors and artists who will decorate the barrels and for hosting the Auction.

A special thanks also to Festival sponsor Wildcat Moving, who provided the truck and manpower to move the barrels from Four Roses to Ferm Solutions.

Get ready to see some of the most creative Bourbon Barrel Art you’ve ever witnessed!
