Carnegie Center for Art and History
A 5-minute drive from Louisville, in New Albany, IN, the Carnegie Center for Art and History is a museum of local history and also a contemporary art gallery that offers a number of programs and activities for the art and history enthusiast.
The Center's three permanent history exhibits are Grandpa Makes a Scene: The Yenawine Dioramas, describing life in a rural Indiana town in the early 1900's; Ordinary People, Extraordinary Courage: Men and Women of the Underground Railroad; and Remembered: the Life of Lucy Higgs Nichols, a woman who escaped from slavery.
Each year, the Center hosts an exhibition entitled Form, Not Function: Quilt Art at the Carnegie in which contemporary works of art in the form of quilts are featured. Additional, temporary modern displays of art are rotated in and out of the Center on a regular basis.
