The next Louisville Life, hosted by Candyce Clifft, features wood artisan Jason Cohen, The Root Cellar in Old Louisville and Germantown neighborhoods, architect Charles Cash discussing KET's “Ten Buildings That Changed Louisville” project, and Gudmar Petursson’s Icelandic horses. The program premieres Saturday, Nov. 16 at 7:30/6:30 p.m. on KET and Thursday, Nov. 21 at 7:30/6:30 p.m. on KET2.
Louisville Life visits with wood artisan Jason Cohen and learns about his recent creations, bourbon barrel furniture. His studio is located on Story Avenue near Bourbon Barrel Foods, which is where he sources his white oak barrels.
Next, the program explores The Root Cellar, an independent food store located in the Old Louisville and Germantown neighborhoods of the River City. Louisville Life interviews owner Ron Smith on the importance of buying local and why he opened his store in “food deserts” – areas where healthy and affordable food is hard to find.
Also featured in this program are Gudmar Petursson and his Icelandic horses. This beautiful breed is being introduced to Kentucky by Petursson, who breeds, trains, shows and sells the horses at his farms in Oldham County and Iceland. His goal is to increase awareness of them here in America and show off their versatility.
In the studio, Clifft talks with Charles Cash, founder of Urban 1, LLC, and president-elect of the Kentucky chapter of the American Institute of Architects. A registered architect in Kentucky and specializing in planning, urban design and historic preservation, Cash talks about the “Ten Buildings That Changed Louisville” competition sponsored by KET and AIA Kentucky.
