The 25th official Owensboro Mayor’s Christmas card is now available for sale. This year’s card was designed by Rex Robinson and themed “A Bluegrass Christmas.”
The card features the grand opening of the new Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum with international artists High Fidelity filling the riverfront atmosphere with Bluegrass music.
Celebrating Christmas “Bluegrass style,” angel lanterns ascend on high in front of a Blue Spruce loaded with Bluegrass globe ornaments. A proposed illuminated sculpture of the state song “Blue Moon of Kentucky” hangs over the Michael E. Horn Family Foundation Outdoor Stage.
In 1988, Mayor David Adkisson commissioned hometown artist Rex Robinson to create a representative image of the current year presented in a Christmas context as a “gift” to the area, and this year Robinson was once again honored with that distinction. Robinson was awarded “Bluegrass Visual Artist” for the International Bluegrass Music Museum (at the time) and his artwork is included in their collection.
The cards can be purchased for $1 each and are available at Owensboro City Hall located at 101 East 4th Street.
A limited number are available.
