President sponsors free admission to 'Diana' exhibit
Nov. 5 is UofL Day at the Frazier History Museum, and President James Ramsey is sponsoring free faculty and staff admission to the exhibit, “Diana: A Celebration.”
The exhibit on Diana, princess of Wales, fills nine galleries and contains more than 150 objects, ranging from her royal wedding gown and 28 designer dresses, to rare home movies and items from her childhood and her humanitarian work. It is on loan from Althorp Estate, the Spencer family’s ancestral home in England.
“Jane and I are looking forward to seeing this special exhibit,” Ramsey said. “We have long appreciated the work of Princess Diana before her untimely death. This event gives us a chance to revisit one of the lasting legacies of Owsley Brown Frazier — the Frazier History Museum — while allowing us to say thank you to our great faculty and staff for all they do for UofL every day.”
The Frazier will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. During those hours, there will be no charge to UofL faculty and staff who register for tickets via the form on the president’s website.
Registrants will be asked to select a time period at which they want to enter the museum. Faculty and staff also may register one guest each at no charge.
From 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., the museum will be closed to everyone but UofL faculty, staff and their guests. The Ramseys invite people to join them for light refreshments in the first floor Great Hall between 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Faculty and staff who want to attend during the evening may bring one guest each to the exhibit. They must register for tickets online and register their guest at the same time.
