2023 Kentucky Culture Symposium

August 12, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Kentucky Culture Symposium is an annual event that explores our shared history through the Kentucky arts, religion, politics, and education that define our culture. It’s about who we are and why, and tailored for Kentuckians, museum professionals, dealers, auctioneers, collectors, historians, and enthusiasts! Each year we bring national and regional speakers to give you the latest scholarship, and all profits support the Liberty Hall Historic Site annual maintenance fund. This year’s theme focuses on the influences upon the artist or creator and in turn, how the artist or creator influenced Kentucky’s culture.


Ticket price: $100 per person includes the full program, continental breakfast, catered lunch at the Kentucky Historical Society, and the post-symposium reception with an exclusive tour at Liberty Hall Historic Site.
