Courier-Journal: Best Photographs
Opening January 24, 2017
Louisville’s Courier-Journal is an enduring publication that's part of the fabric of the community. In its 150 year history the paper has captured the beautiful, the terrible, and the controversial moments of life in our region. These poignant images of our history culminate in an exhibition of the top 100 photographs from the Courier-Journal Archives, and explore themes relevant to all of us that make the Commonwealth our home.
Saving Kentucky: Greening the Bluegrass
Saving Kentucky: Greening of the Bluegrass is a photographic celebration of the stories and places that make Kentucky so special. With photographs by Thomas Hart Shelby, a descendent of Kentucky's first governor, Isaac Shelby, and thoughtful text prepared by Sally Vanwinkle Campbell, a granddaughter of Pappy Vanwinkle, 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.
