Published: Oct 15, 2012

 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 15, 2012) — A favorite photography subject of folks around the Bluegrass is the focus of the first Art Insider Lunch and Lecture Series this fall presented by the Art Museum at the University of Kentucky. Art enthusiasts are invited to enjoy lunch followed by a presentation from Ingrid Cartwright titled "PHOTO  FINISH: Horse Racing, Photography, and Popular Culture in the Late 19th Century" beginning at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 17, at the Hilary J. Boone Center.

 

Cartwright is an art history professor at Western Kentucky University. She is also an accomplished equestrian and was the guest curator for the Art Museum at UK’s recent exhibition "Hoofbeats and Heartbeats: The Horse in American Art." In addition to the show, Cartwright helped develop the 100-page catalogue that documented the first comprehensive exhibition of the horse in history and culture, as reflected in American art. The Art Museum at UK published this catalogue in 2010.

 

Cartwright's presentation will focus on equine photography from Keeneland’s extensive collection and information about the impact that photography has had on the racing industry.

 

Complimentary Boone Center parking is available in the gated lot located behind the facility. The Art Insider Lunch and Lecture Series costs $25. Reservations can be made at 859-257-1133

 

The Art Museum at UK, part of the UK College of Fine Arts, is housed in the Singletary Center for the Arts. The museum, which presents both permanent and special exhibitions, has a collection of more than 4,500 objects, including American and European paintings, drawings, photographs, prints, and sculpture. There are also holdings in art of the Americas, Africa, and Asia.
