Ash Braunecker from Portland Museum came by to talk about A Secret History of American River People, which is a part of the "Afloat" series of exhibits happening in Louisville this year. There will be an opening reception Saturday 1-4pm, and the exhibit runs through August 3

A Secret History of American River People is a project to build a collection of personal stories of people who live and work on the river from the deck of a recreated mid-century shantyboat over a series of epic river voyages. The project examines the emerging crises facing current river communities dealing with economic displacement, gentrification, environmental degradation, and the effects of global climate change. 

“We make our way downriver in a rustic houseboat, built by the artists over two years, loosely based on designs from shantyboats in the 1940s, from largely recycled and reclaimed materials. People tell us that traveling on the river in an authentic shantyboat and taking the time to listen to people’s stories makes this project unique. This participatory art project inspires deep wonder and connects meaningfully with people’s personal histories.” - Wes Modes

Daniel Pfalzgraf is an occasional artist and full-time curator who’s been working with galleries and museums since — as he elegantly describes it — the turn of the century. With a degree in Sculpture and Drawing, as well as an affection for soccer, marketing, and Banksy, he’s definitely the Center’s resident Renaissance man. However, and when his mind isn’t on art or soccer, it’s often filled with thoughts of wolves, conspiracy theories, or playing an endless loop of the opening riff from Smoke on the Water. So, yes. He’s also a little bit different.                  Dpfalzgraf.com

Her comparative work focuses on the United Kingdom’s Human Rights Act and the European Convention on Human Rights.

Stretched across a vast range of media, Holden creates contemporary, inventive and complex two and three-dimensional conceptual work. His Deconstruction series of work serves as the foundation for an ongoing investigation of human behavior and how it affects people and those around them. Often using repurposed, common and uncommon collected materials related to the particular behavior he is addressing.

Holden’s works are in the public collections of Humana Health Care, Brown-Forman Corporation, The Helen Keller Foundation, The City of Louisville, National Public Radio, The University of Louisville and many others.

Robert is motivated by the form that a dancer gains from training in the traditions of classical ballet, where respect and discipline can facilitate breathtaking strength and freedom. He is also inspired by the innovation that forms the function of any artist, that being to bravely and boldly express oneself through art for the greater good of a community.
