Our second Spring Art After Hours was held at Ashland, The Henry Clay Estate on April 18th. We- had- a -blast. From the photo booth by Isabel Sam Photography to the delicious food from South Van Events to the amazing tour by Ashland docents. This event is going to be hard to top!
The event was centered around the 120th wedding anniversary of Nannette McDowell to Dr. Thomas Bullock. This wedding was such a big deal 120 years ago so we wanted to relive the excitement today!
The guests arrived at Ashland for some networking and a create-your-own wedding attire station. The group was introduced to the Museum by Curator, Eric Brooks and Director of Tour Operations, Avery Malone. We heard about exciting reenactments and other opportunities at Ashland. Then came the tour. The participants had to be dragged out of the entertaining tours – well not literally. The group tried to retain as much information as they could because they were going to be quizzed on the information for a chance at a $50 gift card to DeSha’s Restaurant and Coffea! I want to thank everyone who came to participate and make this event so special, especially Chelsea Sparks, and our volunteers-Amanda McClain and Jessica Kral. We are looking forward to our next AAH at Tuska House and hope to see everyone there!
