Field Trip: GSCM

On Wednesday, my Foundations 112 students and I walked up town to the Georgetown & Scott County Museum. We were welcomed by Mr. Rice, former teacher and photographer at Paintsville H.S., who is now the Director of the Museum.

For those of you who have not visited before, or if it's been a while since you have visited, please take the time to walk uptown and take in their exhibits. The Museum focuses on the history of this region with its permanent displays and, also, has temporary installations. One of these exhibits focuses on quilts, with some amazing examples from the Gaines house in Georgetown as well as contemporary works. The other temporary display focuses on the Civil War and features a reconstruction, in miniature, of the Orphan Brigade of Kentucky who fought at the Battle of Chickamauga.

Students looking for a FDN 112 course in the spring, consider taking my FDN 112 Engaging Objects. Come learn about objects, artifacts, and works of art first-hand:)
