Don’t worry, the Kentucky Center isn’t getting fresh (well, kinda), it just wants you to know its name. The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts turned 25 this year and one of the upgrades to the facility is a new sign on Main Street above its main entrance.
Every now and again, something changes in town and you ask yourself, “Why hasn’t this happened sooner?” This is one of those cases, albeit a minor one. The sign continues with the signage found on the inside of the Kentucky Center and, we think, looks really, really nice. We may be getting a little too deep, but amid the dramatic arcs and curves and shifting planes of the building, the letters seem to be dancing delicately on the edge of a glass tightrope. Well done, Kentucky Center.
One bit of bad news, however. The restaurant space in the building most recently occupied by Jarfi’s (which moved to Bardstown Road) doesn’t look like it will see a new tenant any time soon. While the Kentucky Center would still like to see a restaurant open there, the space is now being converted into an area that can be rented out for events with catering. Over the last couple months, some sort of demolition work has been going on inside and filled dumpsters taken away. We really like that sign, though.
