Traveling Exhibit: “Basketmaking: Our Handmade Heritage”

In 2014, KFP began work on a set of exhibit panels highlighting Kentucky’s white oak basketmaking tradition. Funded by an NEA ArtWorks grant, these free-standing, 3′ x 7′ retractable panels incorporate images of basketmakers, their work, and the life narratives of these artists to help contextualize this important local tradition for a wide audience. To enhance the project and provide an even greater understanding of this important regional tradition, KFP also secured funding through the grant to bring basketmakers into each library location for hands-on demonstrations and discussion about their work.

For information about displaying the panels at your venue, contact Graduate Assistant Nicole Musgrave.
