Barrels of Heart

The Frazier History Museum’s permanent exhibition “The Spirit of Kentucky” has a new temporary installation. The Louisville nonprofit Bourbon with Heart is now showing 20 bourbon barrels painted by local artists. Bourbon with Heart founder Morgan Hancock said she started the project “with the goal of creating a space for local artists to showcase their work … Art is like a good glass of bourbon; it brings people together and encourages self-expression.” Visitors to the show can vote on their favorite and the winner receives a cash prize. The barrels are sponsored by local companies, such as Buzzard’s Roost Sipping Whiskeys, Heaven’s Door Whiskey and Old Louisville Whiskey Co. —Jo Anne Triplett
