Great Revivals: Kentucky Decorative Arts TreasuresOld State CapitolNow on Exhibition
What is a treasure? Explore pieces from the Kentucky Historical Society collections in "Great Revivals: Kentucky Decorative Arts Treasures," an exhibition that highlights five stylistic design eras and the commonwealth's treasures from those times. Artifacts featured in the exhibition illustrate the evolution of decorative styles and the changing tastes of nineteenth-century Kentuckians. In addition to reviving this long-stored collection, "Great Revivals" is an invitation to revisit and become reacquainted with the Old State Capitol, a National Historic Landmark.
"Great Revivals" was made possible by the Kentucky Historical Society Foundation and the Kentucky Treasures Endowment Fund, which was created to fund the purchase, preservation and presentation of Kentucky treasures. For more information, see our press release.
