Jerrold Hirsch, professor emeritus of history, will be featured on Kentucky Educational Television’s latest “Kentucky Muse” program, “Kentucky By Design.” The document shines a light on The Index of American Design, a 1930s Federal Art Project which put artists to work producing a catalog of paintings of pre-1900s American functional art in order to preserve and document them for future generations. Hirsch has done extensive research on the subject, and his essay, “Kentucky Folk Art: New Deal Approaches,” was featured in the book “Kentucky by Design: The Decorative Arts and American Culture.” The program featuring Hirsch will air at 9:30/8:30 p.m. Jan. 30 on KET.

Daniel Mandell
