ArchiCamp offered for kids

On July 14-15, Indiana Landmarks, the Howard Steamboat Museum, and the Culbertson Mansion State Historic Site will offer a two-day ArchiCamp for children ages 8-12. Participants spend both days — from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. — discovering the history of Jeffersonville and New Albany and the communities’ landmark architecture.

Activities will focus on Jeffersonville on the first day, when campers tour the Howard Steamboat Museum, learn how bridges work, and play steamboat-related games.

On the second day, campers will travel to nearby New Albany, where they will experience New Albany’s earliest home — the 200-year-old Scribner House — contrasted with the Victorian opulence of the Culbertson Mansion, and learn about decorative painting.  

The camp also involves hands-on activities, including using historic tools and a scavenger hunt.

Cost of the camp is $35 and includes refreshments, educational materials, and souvenirs; transportation to and from New Albany will also be provided. Campers bring their own sack lunches. Enrollment for the camp is limited to 15 children. For information, call 812-284-4534 or email


Art opening taking place today

Southern Indiana Paint Supply Annex and Arts Council of Southern Indiana will sponsor an opening reception for Larry Beisler: “Organics Concurrent” with the Wini Kemple Harrison Exhibit from 5:30 to 7 p.m. today, July 11, at Southern Indiana Paint Supply Annex, 1638 Market St.. His exhibit will continue through Aug. 7.

Beisler lives and creates in his studio near Elizabeth. Carving is his greatest love. He has no preconceived idea as to what he is going to create, but let’s the stone tell him what it wants to reveal.

The use of and organic material, his choice of color and character of stone, gives a movement and energy to the pieces that would be otherwise be absent.
