Kentucky Museum is open extended hours 5 - 8 pm for the July 19th Gallery Hop. Make the Kentucky Museum your first stop of the Gallery Hop to see the just opened Basketry Now: 10th Anniversary Exhibition.
This juried exhibition is held in conjunction with the National Basketry Organization 2019 Biennial Conference. The NBO biennial exhibitions have become an important record of artistic work within traditional and contemporary basketry. They are unique in their focus on basketry and in their inclusion of the full range of work being executed by well-known and emerging artists.
NBO selected Heather Sealy Lineberry as the juror for Basketry Now. Lineberry is Senior Curator at the Arizona State University Art Museum and has 25 years of experience curating contemporary art exhibitions with an emphasis on hybrid art forms and collaborations across disciplines. Projects include Intertwined: Contemporary Baskets from the Sara and David Lieberman Collection, which traveled nationally. Lineberry teaches in the museum studies program at ASU and advises students in curatorial practice through internships and degree committees. She publishes, lectures and juries nationally and internationally.
