Summary

COLLECTION NOTE
This collection features information and documentation of the “Made to be Played:
Traditional Art of Kentucky Luthiers” exhibit which focused on luthiers throughout the state. The
exhibit was sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts: American Masterpieces, the
Kentucky Arts Council, and the Kentucky Historical Society.
In 2006 and 2007, the Kentucky Folklife Program began a survey of some of Kentucky’s
master luthiers. Not every luthier could be included in the exhibit, but the artists used represent
a sampling of old and new traditions of musical-instrument building and repair. The exhibit
opened at the Kentucky Artisan Center in Berea on 21 June 2007, and eventually was displayed
at various fairs, museums, and community events across Kentucky.
