Opening of “Kentucky Unseen: Roadside Views of The Bluegrass”

Please join us on July 9, 2016 for the opening of “Kentucky Unseen: Roadside Views of The Bluegrass” a photography exhibit by Linda Bruckheimer.

The iconic images of Linda’s Kentucky capture a Commonwealth less traveled and her photographs are featured in this exhibition.

Linda’s passion for photography was inspired by a road trip along Route 66 from Kentucky to Hollywood in a 1953 Packard driven by her mother. As she watched the world go by through the car window, she was fascinated by the vintage signs and roadside architecture.

Although she has traveled the world, Linda’s most prodigious work, as well as her favorite photos, depict the Bluegrass State.
