New Tax Law Goes Into Effect July 1
Effective July 1, a new tax reform package passed by the Kentucky state legislature requires that BCM, like other non-profit organizations, apply a 6% sales tax to museum admissions, event tickets, memberships, gift shop purchases and other sales.
The good news is that educational programs, such as our Tot Tuesdays!, Brown Bag lunches, Chippie's Sensational Science Labs, and of course, our school programming, are not taxable.
We appreciate your understanding and continued support. If you have questions about this legislative issue, please do not hesitate to contact your Kentucky legislative representative.
The Great Outdoors
Now Open Through October 1
Our newest exhibit is a salute to all of those exhilarating activities that we enjoy outside the confines of our homes, schools and offices. Whether we're strolling through the park or running a marathon, paddling a canoe or deep-sea fishing, outdoor activities clear our minds and provide a relaxing escape from day-to-day routines.
Tom Bluemlein American Impressionist
June 10-July 29
Finding inspiration in nature in all of its forms, similar to Claude Monet, Bluemlein captures what a camera cannot. His landscape, waterscape and still life oil paintings are apt counterpoints to "The Great Outdoors" exhibit, also opening Sunday.
Meet the artist and view his work at the opening reception from 2 to 4 p.m. The Bluemlein exhibit runs through July 29.
Mrs. White's Kindergarten
NOW ON EXHIBIT
When Kentucky suspended the public kindergarten system in 1959, Betty White bridged the educational gap, teaching 450 children in her Fort Wright home over a span of 19 years.
