The next Louisville Life, hosted by Candyce Clifft, features the next part in the series "The Ten Buildings that Changed Louisville,” Muldoon Memorials, the director of The Filson Historical Society, and the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience. The program premieres Saturday, March 29 at 7:30/6:30 p.m. on KET and Thursday, April 3 at 7:30/6:30 p.m. on KET2.
Louisville Life continues its “Ten Buildings that Changed Louisville” series with a look at two downtown buildings that are neighbors on Main Street, one designed by the famed Mies van der Rohe and the other by Michael Graves.
Founded by Colonel Michael Muldoon in 1854, Muldoon Memorials has designed and created hundreds of personal and civic monuments around Louisville and the country. They include the Korean War Memorial at McNeely Lake, the Kentucky Fallen Firefighters Memorial in Frankfort, and the Kentucky State Memorial at Vicksburg. Louisville Life explores the company’s history and the stories behind some of its most distinguished creations.
The program also takes a tour of the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience, a new attraction located on Louisville’s historical “Whiskey Row” on Main Street.
In the studio, Clifft talks with Filson Historical Society director Mark Wetherington about this important interpreter of Louisville’s past and its impressive future plans.
