Gazing Deeply showcases how WKU’s backyard—the unique landscape of Mammoth Cave—is being studied, interpreted, and inspiring action on environmental change. Coinciding with the UNESCO Conservation of Fragile Karst Resources: A Workshop on Sustainability and Community and Earth Day’s 50th anniversary in 2020, this exhibition is a collaborative effort between arts and science faculty and students that highlights one of the most well-known and vital natural landscapes in the world.

History suggests that as “big business” started to take hold in the late 1800s, women became more involved in business and working outside the home. However, few women owned companies. Those that did were in industries centered on women, such as home goods, apparel, or personal care.

Today, women own only 40% of businesses in the U.S., making Carrie Burnam Taylor’s business of the early 20th century that much more impressive. Curated with Dr. Carrie Cox, this exhibit will explore Taylor's life and work, displaying three of her dresses, two coats, two bodices, and various undergarments recently conserved thanks to our Adopt-an-Artifact program.

Hilltopper Creamery's  “Farm to Campus” program went from first piloting in 2020 to full production mode in 2022. A big contributing factor to the program’s progress was made possible by the horticulture unit receiving a generous donation of two new greenhouses from an anonymous donor. One of these donated greenhouses was being utilized as a heated high tunnel for vegetable production, allowing students to grow produce year-round, regardless of the season. Unfortunately, this greenhouse was one of two that were completely destroyed in the recent storms. Three additional greenhouses were damaged. 

10% of proceeds donated to assist in replacement and repairs of greenhouses at WKU Agricultural Research Education Complex.
