Buildings Committee chairman Paul Fourshee said, “For the Bhutanese exhibit, we are planning to paint the walls red to give the building a shocking new appearance.” The exhibit is scheduled to open on July 1. Fourshee said that after the close of the exhibit, the museum planned to return the building to its traditional appearance.
In charge of the exhibit is Board Member Karen Clement. She said that the exhibit would be huge, with several native art media, including textiles. A possible piece planned for display is a silk tent. The board discussed serving Bhutanese cuisine at the opening reception, though several board members commented that the traditional diet featured exotic ingredients and was heavy on chili peppers and cheese.
Clement said that plans for the dance on March 24 had entered a final stage. Plans call for the evening affair to be broken into two acts that may be attended separately or together. Dinner and swing music commences at the Lake Barkley Convention Center at 5 P.M. for $50 per person. The Temple Aires will provide music for the dance floor. At 10 P.M. The Cat Daddies will perform classic rock standards until 1 A.M. Tickets for the second event are $25 per guest. A ticket for both events costs $75. She added that the theme of the event is “Around the World in 80 Days,” and will feature a travel motif in the décor and several handmade hot air balloons.
