A Legendary Life on the River
with Harlan & Anna
Save the Date!
Life on the Fringe : Harlan Hubbard Day

Saturday, May 19, 1:30 p.m.
Considered the "Henry David Thoreau of Kentucky," Harlan Hubbard led a simple life, expressing himself through his artwork and writings. After traveling on the river in a shantyboat for half a decade, he and his wife Anna spent over 30 years living off of the land in Payne Hollow, KY, gardening, fishing, tending goats, singing musical duets, painting and writing away from the conveniences of modern society.

Learn more about Harlan and Anna Hubbard from two journalists who knew and documented the famous couple, and view the museum’s collection of Hubbard’s artwork. At 1 p.m., Richard Nugent, former photographer for the Louisville Courier Journal, will share stories and photographs taken at the Hubbards’ Payne Hollow home. Morgan Atkinson will follow, speaking about his experience creating the Hubbard documentary “Wonder” and show highlights from the film. An exhibit of Hubbard's artwork is also on display.

The event takes place in the BCM TOYOTA Education Center. Cost: $10 for BCM members; $15 for future members. Reservations required by May 16 at 859-491-4003 or education@bcmuseum.org.
