While the rainy weather this Labor Day weekend did not cooperate with planned cook-outs and other end-of-summer outdoor fun, it did remind us that Fall is around the corner and it's time to start planning our social calendar in Louisville for the Autumn months. In this post we'll highlight the new events coming to our city as well as some old favorites that shouldn't be missed!
Claude Monet Exhibit at the Speed Art Museum
Claude Monet’s celebrated Nymphéas (waterlily paintings) are appearing at Louisville's Speed Art Museum this Fall. The paintings are part of a series of approximately 250 oil paintings painted by the French Impressionist . They depict his flower garden at his home in Giverny, and were the main focus of his artistic production during the last thirty years of his life. Click here to learn more about the exhibit.
Chair Yoga at the Waterfront Botanical Gardens
Chair yoga is a great way for older adults to get the wonderful health benefits of yoga while safely performing the exercises. The benefits of chair yoga includes loosening and stretching tight muscles, reducing chronic pain, lowering stress, and improving circulation. The Waterfront Botanical Gardens will be hosting Chair Yoga in the Leslie Botanical Classrooms this Fall. The next session will be held on Wednesday, September 14 from 10:00 – 11:00AM. The class costs $15 for members of the public and $10 for Waterfront Botanical Gardens members. Click here to learn more about the sessions.
