As deadly wildfires globally increase in number and severity, residents of fire-prone areas are finding themselves on the frontline of these historic and potential climate-changing events. This exhibition of over 50 images and a documentary film from recent California fire seasons, come together in this body of work from nine critically-acclaimed photojournalists and explores the ramifications these fires can have and reveal the pain, suffering and all-encompassing loss the victims endure.
Please join us as we sit down and talk with Jackie Abrams about her life as a basketmaker and fiber artist. Several pieces of Jackie's work can be seen in Basketry Now: 10th Anniversary Exhibition, sponsored by the National Basketry Organization in the Kentucky Museum until December 1, 2019. This event is a FREE event organized by the Kentucky Folklife Program.
