Albert B. Comstock Gallery
Named to honor a local banker and philanthropist, features changing exhibitions in the arts and humanities, intimate musical events, and panel discussions.
Exhibit will show March 16 - May 19, 2017
We invite you to experience the beautiful, dynamic work of Nicola Lynch Morrin, County Kildare, Republic of Ireland, Jane Lloyd, County Antrim, Northern Ireland, Susan Gorsen and Denise Mucci Furnish, of Louisville, Kentucky. The language they use is the Art of Color.
In 1997, Susan Gorsen established the "GreenGrass/Bluegrass/NewGrass Project," a series of cultural exchanges for visual artists. From these exchanges, the four artists represented in this show bonded in friendships that cross boundaries, oceans, and artistic mediums.

Portland: The Land, the River, and the People
You will discover how the 19th century town of Portland developed below the Falls of the Ohio River. Portland: The Land, the River, and the People employs dioramas, a terrain model, historic figures, and automated lights and sounds to bring fascinating characters and events to life in a 23-minute experience.
Portland’s vibrant sports history comes to life in A Neighborhood of Teams, A Community of Champions, A Golden Boy From Portland, and Run to Win: Paul Hornung at Green Bay. Historic images and the extensive Paul Hornung Collection of sport memorabilia tell the story of a working class neighborhood where team sports shaped identity and community, while producing world class athletes like Paul Hornung.
Captain Mary Miller
A Lady Steamboat Man: Portland’s Captain Mary Miller, introduces your museum tour with tales from her life as the first woman in America licensed to pilot a steamboat. Captain Miller has been honored by the city of Louisville by the naming the newly purchased riverboat the Mary M. Miller.
