On September 12, the Kentucky Museum launches a new fundraising campaign called “Adopt an Artifact.” With a special invitation from “Nunu,” the Ancient Egyptian sarcophagus on display in the Decorative Arts Gallery, the South Central Kentucky community is invited to make a gift and “adopt” an artifact to support future conservation and care.
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.
Dr. Justin Carlson of WKU's Kentucky Archaeological Survey will present “The Archaeology of Middle Archaic Hunter-Gatherers at Ireland Cave, Kentucky” to kick-off the new Brown Bag Lecture Series sponsored by the Department of Folk Studies and Anthropology.
'Brown Bags' provide an informal venue for presentations of work in progress. The goal is to create a forum to learn about one another’s work, and to provide professional development for students, faculty, and friends of the department in need of an informal space to share ideas, new research, or work through relevant problems.
All presentations are BYOL(bring your own lunch) and are open to the entire campus/community.
