The Carnegie

The Carnegie

The Carnegie is a theater and art gallery, moreover has The Carnegie Galleries, the Eva G. Farris Center and the Otto M. Budig Theater all under one roof, or should I say , one dome.

The Galleries were being prepared for the Art of Food, which starts February 28th, so much of the rooms were empty, but I did get a photo of the giant cutting board.

The Eva G Farris Center has in school, after school programs and a "Camp"  which includes live performances, art making,  and other fun starting June 2nd.

The Otto M. Budig Theater host a theater series, which has included Chicago, The Sound of Music and upcoming soon, the theatrical version of Harvey.

We met Amman there and he gave us a tour of the building, which was started in 1902, and opened in 1904 as a Public Library until 1972 and has been and under renovation since. He was very nice and informative and filled in well for Kathryn Brass, who was in stuck in traffic, and couldn't make it. It is located at 1028 Scott Street in Covington, Kentucky, the website is  http://www.thecarnegie.com  and we recommend you to visit and/or take in a theater production.

Disclaimer: This is our own opinion about the Carnegie. We were not compensated in any way to write about or photograph the building.
