Sept. 19, 2012 — Morehead State University’s Kentucky Folk Art Center will hold its annual “A Night in Horse Country” on Thursday, Oct. 18, at 6 p.m. at the Signature Club of Lansdowne in Lexington.
Tickets are $50 per person and must be purchased in advance.
All funds generated from the event will go toward KFAC’s newly established collection acquisition fund. The primary target for these funds is the acquisition of a “Noah’s Ark by Edgar Tolson.” Only two complete Noah’s Arks by Tolson are known to exist. This piece has been offered to KFAC if funds can be raised by the end of 2012.
“Typically, A Night in Horse Country is a great way for us to stay in touch with our many supporters in central Kentucky,” said Matt Collinsworth, KFAC director. “But this year, we have a specific purpose for the event. We’ve been offered a one-time opportunity to acquire a masterpiece of Kentucky folk art. We need our friends’ help to keep it in Kentucky.”
The event will feature folk art sales, a live auction, music by Coralee and the Townies and Second Set, and food and drinks from Selma’s Catering.
A Night in Horse Country is organized by Friends of Kentucky Folk Art Center. The event is sponsored by Christina Lee Brown, UK HealthCare, Barry and Laura Crume, Eugenia K. Potter, Michael and Ellen Karpf, and Richard and Magdalena Mook.
Kentucky Folk Art Center is a cultural, educational and economic development service of Morehead State University. The Center is open Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
