Luthier exhibit at library Aug 7 - Sep 2

In conjunction with the Bluegrass in the Park Festival, the library is hosting a special exhibit by the Kentucky Arts Council and the Kentucky Historical Society that features the art and tradition of Kentuckians who are considered masters in the making and repairing of guitars, fiddles, banjos, mandolins, dulcimers and other original stringed instruments.

Made to be Played: Traditional Art of Kentucky Luthiers is funded through a National Endowment for the Arts American Masterpieces grant and is dedicated to the memory of master luthier, craftsman, instrument inventor and musician, Homer Ledford.

Come to the library at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 7, for a presentation about luthiers and a performance by a local bluegrass band. Read more about the exhibit ...
