Educational Programs and Events

 

"CULTURE BITES: Northern Kentucky's Food Traditions"

April 22 - August 13

The impact of food from immigrants on Northern Kentucky's social and cultural development is the focus of an exhibit developed by students in Northern Kentucky University's Public History Graduate Program in cooperation with Behringer-Crawford Museum.

"CULTURE BITES: Northern Kentucky's Food Traditions" will run through August 13. On display are old cookbooks, antique cooking utensils and everyday items immigrants brought with them on their journeys from their home countries to Northern Kentucky, such as clothing and steamer trunks. Visitors will have the opportunity to smell the spices from various ethnic recipes and to create their own cookbooks as they tour the exhibit.

Admission is free for BCM members and included with regular museum admission for future members.

 

 

"Korea: The Forgotten War"

July 15 - October 1

A new exhibit at BCM honors thousands of Northern Kentuckians who served in the Korean conflict, an era wedged between World War II and the Vietnam War which came to be known as “the forgotten war” because it received relatively little attention over the years.

“Korea: The Forgotten War” features recorded interviews, diaries, photographs and artifacts loaned or donated by local Korean War veterans and their families. These personal war stories shed new light on one of the most tumultuous and little-known periods in American history. Included in the exhibit is a miniature statue of Thomas Dehne, a Marine from Newport, KY, who was a model for one of the 19 full-size statues in the Korean War Veterans Memorial on the National Mall in Washington D.C.

The exhibit will be on display through Sunday, October 1. It is open during regular museum hours and is included with museum admission. A public reception for the exhibit will be held at BCM from 1-3 on Saturday, August 5. All veterans and their spouses will be admitted free; veterans’ families will be half-price.
