For the twelfth time, CONNECT at Bernheim again will challenge minds and delight the senses.
Don’t miss the chance to see our Forest Giants in a Giant Forest lit up to glow under the night sky! 2022 Artists in Residence, Mike Elsherif and Sonja Hirichsen, as well as our first-ever Environmental Artist in Residence Carla Rhodes, will also be showcasing their work around Lake Nevin.
The night includes live musical performances, spontaneous art displays, and hands-on experiences for adults and families, including making art, drum circle participation, Louisville Silent Disco, and participatory science, not to mention, the sand pit and the bubble play zone.
What goes better with music than food and beverage? This year’s CONNECT will again have regional craft beer from Mile Wide Beer Company in Louisville and West Sixth Brewing in Lexington and wine from Forest Edge Winery right here in Clermont! We will also have more food options than ever for your enjoyment.
As always, live music will be woven throughout the event. Let these artists delight your ears.
