Enid Yandell Exhibition Opening Reception

  • Filson Historical Society 1310 South 3rd St. Louisville, Ky. 40208 United States (map)

Opening June 7 at the Filson Historical Society, Breaking the Mold: Sculptor Enid Yandell’s Early Life, 1869-1900 examines how Enid broke the mold that society and the art establishment imposed on women in the late 19th and early 20th centuries by pursuing a career as a sculptor. Known for the figure of Pan on Hogan’s Fountain and the Daniel Boone statue, both in Cherokee Park, this celebratory exhibit commemorates the 150th year of her birth and features materials from the Filson’s collections, exploring Enid’s early life, her time at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, and her early career. The Frazier History Museum’s debut interpretation of the sculptor will be at this June 7 event, which is free and open to the public. The exhibit will be at the Filson through Dec. 27, 2019.
