Carnegie Center for Art & History
New Albany, Indiana’s Carnegie Center for Art & History is a contemporary art gallery and history museum. The museum, which is housed in an historic Carnegie Library building, has several permanent exhibits and offers a full schedule of changing exhibits.
The Center offers visitors an opportunity to enjoy art works in a variety of media, to take part in lectures and workshops based on those exhibits, and to learn more about the colorful history of Floyd County, Indiana.
In celebration of Black History Month, Louisville Life gives you a look at the Carnegie’s new permanent exhibit, titled Ordinary People, Extraordinary Courage: Men and Women of the Underground Railroad in the Indiana and Kentucky Borderland. The exhibit examines the antislavery community in Floyd County and describes life in the Falls region of the Ohio River Valley.
Admission to the Carnegie Center is free. Visit their website for hours, directions and both class and exhibition schedules.
