Additional exhibit’s and events at the Frazier for Spring 2017

Saving Kentucky: Greening the Bluegrass is a photographic celebration of the stories and places that make Kentucky so special. With photographs by Thomas Hart Shelby, a descendant of Kentucky’s first governor, Isaac Shelby, and thoughtful text prepared by Sally Van Winkle Campbell, a granddaughter of Pappy Van Winkle, these engaging Kentucky stories leap off the page and into our hearts. From tenant farmers to urban revivalists, these Kentuckians have one thing in common: a deep connection to their heritage and a fierce determination to preserve it for future generations. These photographs present a call to each of us to embrace the future with hope, and most of all, imagination, even as we hold tight to the past. Featuring stories from Lucille Carloftus in Livingston, Nancy Newsom Mahaffey in Caldwell County, the Mattingly Family of Barren County, Kentucky, Saving Kentucky presents a sampling of what makes Kentucky so unique.

Nutcracker: The Exhibition, presented in collaboration with the Louisville Ballet, the state ballet of Kentucky, is a visual and scenic walk through the tantalizing sets and costumes of beautiful Nutcracker productions rooted in Kentucky. This endearing holiday classic has been part of the fabric of our community for six decades and the Louisville Ballet is one of the oldest professional ballet companies in the United States. Recalling historic local presentations guests will journey through the Stahlbaum Party Scene, the Waltz of the Snowflakes, and the Land of the Sugar Plum Fairy. The exhibition will also feature a collection of handmade Nutcrackers, photographs, and other artifacts.

Commemorating the 100 Anniversary of the United States of America entering into World War I and all the brave men who served, the Frazier History Museum is presenting an exhibit to be on display in the fall of 2017.

Items on display will include a very rare experimental M1 Helmet made by the Ford Motor Company and WWI Trench Art made by soldiers out of found objects.
