View from the Hill – White Oak Basket Exhibit

A new exhibit at the Kentucky Museum pays tribute to the time honored tradition of basket making.   In this week’s View from the Hill, Amy Bingham talks to one basket maker who is about to receive national recognition for her talent.

 

Next week Waddell will be in Washington D.C. to receive the National Heritage lifetime achievement award, the nation’s highest honor in folk and traditional arts.   You can see the white oak basket exhibit for yourself at the Kentucky Museum through January 31st.   For information log onto http://www.wku.edu/kentuckymuseum.
