Second Saturday - Halloween!

Second Saturday - Halloween!

We’re always excited for October because there are so many great stories to share! This Second Saturday is always a family-friendly day of hands-on fun and mystery.  From great fiction like our hilarious live adaptation of Washington Irving’s Legend of Sleepy Hollow, to the real life scare of the Salem Witch Trials, Halloween never fails to capture our imagination.  Among other things, you can face your fears at the Table of Phobias, and test your Halloween candy knowledge.

 Joining us this day will be Zach Bramel and Deva North, winners of a Jim Henson Grant and creators of the upcoming play CREATURE: A Puppet Frankenstein Adaptation.  Zach and Deva will be on hand to demonstrate and discuss how they created the magnificent monster from Mary Shelley’s imagination.  They will also help families create a puppet monster of their very own.

Also joining us will be Daniel Sullivan of Pumpkin King Custom Jack-o-Lantern Carving, who can show you some of the finer points of pumpkin carving and help you up your game this Halloween.

And while you’re here, don’t forget to visit The Table of Fears to see how well you know your phobias (in a fun, silly way). 

At the Candy Challenge, can you sort the Halloween treats in order by the date they first appeared.  You might be surprised – and learn something too. All of this and more!

Our Second Saturday programming is included with museum admission (free for Members!).

Nationally-recognized Urban Design Consultant Joshua Poe will explore the racist origins of Louisville’s 1938 redlining maps and the far-reaching impact they have had on our city.  The presentation will introduce how urban design shapes human behavior and end with a discussion of current city planning efforts, gentrification, and strategies to create equitable development in formerly redlined areas. 

Joshua Poe is a pioneer in documenting and exposing how city planning was used as a tool to deny black people land ownership and access to the accumulation of generational wealth. With a B.A. in Political Science from Berea College and a Master of Arts in Urban Planning from the University of Louisville, Mr. Poe has worked as an independent researcher, activist, and city planner in Louisville, KY.  His  interactive story map, Redlining Louisville: The History of Race, Class, and Housing in Louisville, KY received recognition from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government as best-in-class data visualization.

Kentucky by Way of Ireland: An Evening with Michael Reidy

Kentucky by Way of Ireland: An Evening with Michael Reidy

The Frazier’s supper series weaves a narrative about food using live personal stories and conversations between Kentucky chefs and Robert Bleifer, Executive Chef & Vice President of Culinary at the Food Network.

Michael Reidy was born in Kilmihil, Co. Clare, Ireland.  Upon graduation he moved to New York, met his future wife and later moved to Kentucky,  where his gregarious nature destined him to open Louisville’s first Irish pub.  To that end, Michael started at the bottom of the local restaurant industry and began working his way up the ladder, eventually opening The Irish Rover. His efforts to introduce the joys of Irish pub culture to Louisville were successful, and the business is now in its 25th year. Michael is as gregarious and delightful as you would expect an Irish pub owner to be. He also has been intentional to remind us that he (like Guy and Roni before him) is not a trained chef, but rather oversees a menu that blends his Irish roots with a Kentucky spirit.

Appetizer Course: A flight of three whiskey products served with Smoked Salmon and Irish Brown Bread 

Main Course: Lamb Stuffed Cabbage, beverage will be choice of Red Ale or house wine  

Dessert: Eton Mess
