Kentucky Derby Festival

Louisville, KY

The temporary exhibit “Pegasus Released: a 50th Celebration Review of the Kentucky Derby Festival” pays tribute to the Derby Festival’s development and role in the community. Utilizing engaging graphics, audio elements and festival artifacts such as the Queen’s robe, crown and scepter, event trophies and the original 1954 Festival budget sheet, the 1,500 square foot exhibit focuses on the Festival’s history, events and the Pegasus Parade. Featured elements of the exhibit will be rotated into the Derby Festival’s permanent display on the first floor of the Kentucky Derby Museum while additional elements are incorporated into vignette pieces scheduled to travel to area institutions.
