There are not many artists whose work has its own Metro stop (U Street/African-American Civil War Memorial/Cardozo in Washington, D.C.) or parking lot (Lincoln Memorial in Louisville’s Waterfront Park). Ed Hamilton does. Louisville’s famous-sculptor-next-door stepped onto the national stage when he received the commission for “The Spirit of Freedom,” aka the African-American Civil War Memorial. His sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and surrounding complex is part of the Kentucky Lincoln Heritage Trail. Hamilton is giving a talk on these works and others at the recently reopened Filson Historical Society. Free, but reservations are encouraged.
