10:00 AM - 3:00 PM Peter Precourt: Roller coaster: Excerpts from the Katrina Chronicles
Art Exhibition of drawings by Maine based artist Peter Precourt.  The exhibition is open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. at the LMU Center for the Arts in Cumberland Gap.

With this body of work, Precourt explores the devastation he and his family personally experienced at the hands of 2005's Hurricane Katrina. This body of work looks to contextualize the history of the storm as it specifically affected Mississippi and its gulf coast. He finds in the storm (and its coverage) a familiar narrative of ignoring the plight of Mississippi, a state often looked down upon if looked upon at all. Through the use of text and image and a mixture of drawing materials Precourt takes us into the destroyed landscape that was Mississippi in the aftermath of the storm. The artist seeks to find his place in the world post-Katrina and how it affected (or didn't) the American recognition of the continuing struggles of one our most vulnerable places.

The exhibiton runs from August 15-September 21 at the LMU Center for the Arts.

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Fielight Learners: Blast ot the 19th Century Past!

The Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum is proud to announce its new program for homeschool families: Firelight Learners. This monthly program will introduce children from a range of ages about topics such as history, science, civics, and the arts!

For our September program, students will be introduced to Abraham Lincoln’s life on the Kentucky and Indiana frontiers. Although he had only one formal year of schooling, he was a “firelight learner” – he took the opportunity to read and study on his own whenever possible, even if it was by firelight. This led to him eventually becoming a lawyer, a politician, and the 16th president of the United States! Participants will take a guided tour through our new exhibit, Log Halls to Marble Walls, and then participate in the activities of a 19th century classroom. Older students will assist younger students with their ABCs and penmanship, and then be taught a lesson on rhetoric and recitation! Children of all ages are welcome to attend this event.
