Louisville native Heather Bond to perform
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (July 18, 2016) — The Frazier History Museum will host Hip History Night at the Museum from 5:30-9 p.m. on July 28 to benefit the Neighborhood House. The event will be headlined by Nashville singer-songwriter and Louisville native Heather Bond performing with Louisville artist Julius Friedman. Bond has a new album, So Long.
The event also features arts, crafts and culture featuring sights, sounds and flavors from across the state. The beer brainiacs behind Goodwood Brewing will be on hand to teach their tricks of the trade and offer samples in the saloon of the Spirits of the Bluegrass exhibit.
Attendees will get a peek behind the stage into “Julius Friedman: Fifty Year Retrospective” and experience a new site specific multimedia installation by Friedman, Donna Lawrence and Richard Van Kleek. Guests will then collaborate with Friedman on a large-scale art project, to be displayed in the museum as part of the Fifty Year Retrospective.
Exhibitions will come alive with costumed performances by Frazier Teaching Artists in the Prohibition and Kentucky and Lewis and Clark Experience exhibitions. Kentucky’s George Gatewood, of Longwood Antique Woods, will rap about Kentucky, Style Blueprint’s Heidi Potter will entertain visitors with quick wit and Kentucky style and Erika Chavez-Graziano of Cellar Door Chocolates will demonstrate her secrets to sweet success.
Visitors also will be invited to put their hands on history in a variety of interactive activities and games, selfie-stations and interactives designed to tap into their Kentucky Pride. Visitors will also be invited to send a Hip History postcard to themselves or friends as a memory of the evening. They can create their own design with etchings and ink or use hand drawn images of Muhammad Ali.
