Executive Director:

Sarah Morgan

Sarah joined us in January of 2018, bringing with her a M.A. in Museum Studies and a B.A. in History of Art from Northern Kentucky University. While in Graduate school she worked with local museums and galleries from the area to curate and design exhibits. She worked with organizations such as the Ross-Gowdy House, the Cincinnati Museum Center,  the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and finally; the Ephraim McDowell House Museum in Danville, Kentucky.

Having grown up locally in Danville, she encourages a focus on the arts culture in our area; and is excited to meet, bring in and showcase as many local artisans and craftspeople from Harrodsburg and the surrounding counties as she can.  

"Helping the arts to thrive, allows the community to flourish."
