Over the weekend, LexArts held its annual Horse Mania Auction, raising money for arts programs in Fayette County schools.

At the event, ~35 different horses were auctioned off, but one horse came out as the front-runner.

Sweet Cerulean” was created by local artist Wylie Caudill + sold for $21,500 — more than any other horse at the auction.

That number was also record-setting for the artist, who had never sold a piece of his artwork for more than $20,000 prior to this event.

Other pieces of artwork from Wylie can be found all across town. Check out the following murals he has painted in Lexington:
