Hubbard film screenings planned

Staff Report

(February 2013) – In conjunction with the showing of a new documentary on Harlan and Anna Hubbard, the late artist-writer and his wife who lived in Trimble County, Ky., the Frankfort (Ind.) Community Public Library is presenting a free exhibit of artwork by Harlan Hubbard through March 23. The exhibit opened Jan. 5. The film was screened at the library on Jan. 27.

Many of the pieces have never been exhibited before, including illustrations done for the book “Shantyboat” and watercolors created while floating through the Louisiana bayou country.

Louisville, Ky., filmmaker Morgan Atkinson directed and produced the new PBS-style documentary about the Hubbards. It is called “Wonder: The Lives of Anna and Harlan Hubbard” and has recently screened in Louisville, Hanover College and the Trimble County Public Library.

The gallery and the arts programming at the Frankfort Community Public Library are named in honor of the Hubbards. The library is located at 208 W. Clinton St., Frankfort, Ind.

Another screening of the film and mini exhibit was held Jan. 28 in Lexington, Ky., at the Kentucky Theatre.
