Breaking the Mold: Sculptor Enid Yandell’s Early Life, 1869-1900

Filson Historical Society

Last month marked the 150th birthday of the Louisville-born and nationally-renowned sculptor Enid Yandell. In this celebratory exhibit, the Filson examines how Yandell broke the mold that society and the art establishment imposed on women in the late 19th and early 20th centuries by pursuing a career as a sculptor. The exhibit explores Yandell’s early life, her time at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, and her early career.  

Yandell was the first female sculptor from Kentucky to achieve international success and one of the first women inducted into the National Sculpture Society.

*Of note: Yandell created three sculptures in Louisville that still exist — both the Daniel Boone statue and the figure of Pan in Hogan’s Fountain in Cherokee Park, and the Wheelman’s Bench in Wayside Park near Iroquois Park.

Complexions Contemporary Ballet

The Kentucky Center

Complexions was founded in 1994 by Choreographer Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson with an approach to reinvent dance through a groundbreaking mix of methods, styles, and cultures. The company’s foremost innovation is that dance should be about removing boundaries, not reinforcing them. Whether it be the limiting traditions of a single style, period, venue, or culture, Complexions transcends them all.

“It’s not that these ballet dancers couldn’t fit in with any company, but that, with the appropriate choreography, which (Rhoden) provides, their individual characteristics become both important and irrelevant – which is what Complexions has been demonstrating for its 25 years. Complexions may be the poster child for choreography that adapts to, even requires, multiple dimensions of diversity.”

Kathleen Madigan — Hot Dogs and Angels Tour

The Kentucky Center

In 1996, Kathleen Madigan won “Funniest Female Stand-Up Comic” at the American Comedy Awards. Since then, publications such as the Chicago Tribune have written that her “dedication to the craft shows in both the evolution of her material over the years and the way she can make a complicated joke with a hidden nub of wisdom seem both effortless and offhand.”

The 53-year-old Missouri native can also be seen riding around with Jerry Seinfeld in his series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and hosts her own radio program, Blue Collar Comedy.

The Arts Insider (who interviewed Madigan for Today’s Woman nine years ago), is a huge fan of Madigan’s observational comedy, which consists of interpersonal relationships and everyday life.
