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.

In the late 1800s, stitchery from London's Royal School of Art needlework and Japanese arts and crafts exhibited at the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition inspired women across America to take up their needles in new and different ways. Explore the various "maniacal" and "maddening" designs that resulted in this showcase of our Crazy Quilt collection.

Join the Department of Theatre & Dance as they present The Studio Series! In this series, three short plays will be shown. These plays include: 

Week Daze

By: Hillary DePiano

Has TJ’s comfortable routine become a rut? When an old friend comes to town with a challenge, TJ’s got to figure out what it really means to live a little. Week Daze zooms out and looks at our  daily routines from a new perspective as all five weekdays play out simultaneously across the stage in a comic ballet.

Annnd Scene (of the Crime)

By: John Busser

Eddie committed murder . . . or did he? In this hilarious one-act play we follow along with our detective's improvised approach to finding the truth.

In Time

By: Ruby Gray

Two different eras come together in this timeless story of finding yourself and falling in love unexpectedly. Through library books and car rides in 2021, Sam and Casey become good friends and show us what it means to find your true self. Through letters and gardens in 1868, Sarah and Cecilia show us what it means to love, and to be able to love.

Admission is $8 and tickets can be purchased at wku.showare.com.
