The University of Kentucky Art Museum will present the pop-up exhibition "Peoples Portal" Nov. 14-15, at the popular Peoples Bank structure on 343 South Broadway, in support of the preservation and move of the building.
The students in the University of Kentucky College of Law Class of 2018 are now several days into their first semester of law school. These individuals have chosen to pursue a career dedicated to assisting individuals and businesses in a time of need. Though they are a few years away from starting their legal careers, members of the Class of 2018 are already giving back to the Lexington community through service projects they participated in during UK Law’s Orientation. On Saturday, August 22, students and faculty assisted four local charities including Aids Volunteers, Inc.
For those who attended the Kentucky Bar Association’s 2015 Annual Convention you probably saw some familiar faces. Several professors from UK Law presented at the convention and shared their expertise with fellow lawyers. The professors involved and presentations given include:
Allison Connelly: Accommodating Transgender Students in Public Schools; Ferguson, Race and the Law
Josh Douglas: Securing the Right to Vote: The 50th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and Current Developments in Election Law
UK Law faculty excel in many areas beyond the practice, teaching, and research of law. Professor Brian Frye demonstrates through his continual contribution to the world of art.
Professor Frye has already had the honor of being included in the 2002 Whitney Biennial collection and had his film Oona’s Veil included in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. His most recent accomplishment boasts his film Oona’s Veil inclusion in the inaugural exhibition, America Is Hard to See, in the Whitney Museum’s new building.
“I have joined the LexArts board because it does such important work supporting and promoting the arts in Fayette County and the surrounding area,” said UK College of Law Professor Brian Frye.
Award-winning filmmaker and College of Law Professor Brian Frye will travel to Istanbul on May 8-13 to present his first feature-length documentary, Our Nixon, at the TRT Film Festival.
Our Nixon is an 85-minute documentary comprised of Super 8 home movies, television news, and archival interviews shot by top Nixon aides H.R. Haldeman, John Ehrlichman, and Dwight Chapin between 1969 and 1972. The film provides a new perspective on how Haldeman, Ehrlichman and Chapin experienced working for President Nixon, and their role in the Watergate conspiracy.
OUR NIXON is an all-archival documentary presenting the Super 8 home movies of H.R. Haldeman, John Ehrlichman and Dwight Chapin for the very first time. The footage from Nixon's aides, which obsessively documents their time in the White House, was seized by the FBI during the Watergate investigation, then filed away and forgotten for almost 40 years. The home movies are presented with other rare footage, creating an intimate and complex portrait of the Nixon presidency as never seen before.
