Winter is Coming: Exhibit Showcases Snowy Photos from Northern Kentucky
Winter is coming in early October to the Behringer-Crawford Museum in Covington’s Devou Park with a photojournalism exhibit of 50 years of Northern Kentucky winters opening on Oct. 4.
The photographs collected from The Kentucky Post, The Kentucky Enquirer, and the Associated Press illustrate winters from 1960 to 2010, several of which were especially memorable. One of the pictures shows people walking across the frozen Ohio River in the historic winter of 1977-78.

Some pictures are of events that happen during the winter months like children marching on Martin Luther King Jr. Day and other winter-related memories of the Northern Kentucky community.
An opening reception will be held at BCM on Friday, Oct. 3, from 6-8 p.m. Admission is $5 to the public, but free to BCM members and FotoFocus passport holders. To make a reservation, contact Tiffany Hoppenjans at 859-491-4003 or [email protected].
The exhibit runs through Jan. 18 and is included with regular museum admission.
