Horse & Racing Frieze

Surrounding the pendulum above the rotunda’s first floor is a frieze inspired by the concept of time as history rather than simply as seconds, minutes and hours. The frieze, painted by Mrs. Wichman, depicts the history of the horse in the Bluegrass. It features horse-breeds that have played an important part of life in our region: American Saddle Horses (a breed developed by Kentucky pioneers), Arabians, Hunters, Ponies, Working Breeds, Standardbreds and Thoroughbreds.
