Taking a cue from the success of KBT’s pared-down season opener, “Ballet Up Close and Personal,” KBT artistic director Norbe Risco and the company of 14 professional dancers return to the Downtown Arts Center this weekend for an intimate evening of rare selections that local audiences probably won’t see on stage — or even in this country — anytime soon.

Artists use egg yolk and decades-old notes to restore Depression-era Morehead mural

Frank Long’s mural “Rural Free Delivery” has hung in the old Morehead police station for 78 years. Now that the building, originally the city post office, is marked for renovation or demolition, artists Steve Graves and Sam McKinney have been working to restore and move the artwork, painted for the New Deal-era Fine Arts Section of the U.S. Department of the Treasury. The results will be on display this weekend at the Morehead Antique Market.
