Henry D. Ormsby Series - February 24
Monday, February 24, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EST)
The 7th Annual Henry D. Ormsby, III Seminar Series honors and recognizes Henry’s devotion and distinguished contributions to The Filson Historical Society. In the first seminar, we will view In the Name of Progress, a 30-minute documentary by the Rev. Al Shands, which was originally aired on WAVE-TV in the 1970s. In the Name of Progress touches on the loss of much of Louisville’s unique architectural heritage in the 1950s and 60s due to urban renewal.
Gill Holland is the owner of The Group Entertainment LLC, which includes a film production company, talent management division, a music company and an art gallery. Together with his wife, Augusta Brown Holland, he developed The Green Building in the east Market Street District known as NuLu. Currently, Holland has turned his attention to the Portland neighborhood in Louisville’s West End and is rehabilitating 100 historic shotgun houses.
