If you are complaining that there is nothing to do, you surely do not live in Louisville. Our fair city offers so many cool attractions and dining destinations that it is sometimes a daunting task to experience all of them, even when you live here! As we further explore our city, one cannot miss today’s offering 21c, founded by Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson. As you approach, the first thing you will see is a parade of red penguins lining the roof. Not only does the hotel offer a free museum to anyone who wishes to enter, they provide the opportunity to sleep in that museum and beyond. An exhibit that has been in place for a little over a year is “Asleep in the Cyclone” by New York based artists Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe. The difference with this exhibit is that is also serves as one of the rooms you can actually book for your stay.Another ongoing series at the hotel’s highly lauded restaurant, Proof on Main, the Fork & Bottle Dinners, continues this Thursday, July 24th and will feature Against The Grain, Louisville’s first brewer-owned brewery who will offer pairings for a 4 course dinner prepared by chef Levon Wallace.
But one cannot forget the real star of 21c’s show and that is the museum which is open 24/7/365 and current exhibits include “Seeing Now” and “Troubling Beauty”. If you visit keep in mind, the penguins can and do show up anywhere. Anywhere.
