Kentucky Symposium Lecture Recordings Available Online
The Decorative Arts Trust extends sincere gratitude to the presenters who contributed these recordings of their stellar lectures from the Trust’s Spring 2022 Symposium in Kentucky.
The conference, titled Kentucky Bluegrass: Lexington & Louisville, was held April 7–10. Over 70 members attended the program, which was postponed from spring 2020 and then spring 2021. Lectures were graciously hosted by the Blue Grass Trust in the Dr. Thomas Hunt Morgan House.
