The next episode of KET’s Kentucky Life spotlights Camp Nelson’s historic photography and Honor Guard, equine artist Jaime Corum, and the Coca-Cola art deco building in Paducah. The episode airs Saturday, Nov. 9, at 8/7 pm and Sunday, Nov. 10, at 4/3 pm on KET, and Monday, Nov. 11, at 7/6 pm on KET2.

First, Kentucky Life visits Camp Nelson in Jessamine County, which served as one of the largest recruiting centers for African-Americans during the Civil War, and learns about evidence of a photography studio at the site, where soldiers would have their image captured for their families. Then, Kentucky Life revisits a segment from its archives on the Camp Nelson Honor Guard and its tradition of honoring deceased soldiers with a horse-drawn caisson at funeral services.

Next, Kentucky Life visits with artist Jaime Corum of Bell County who is celebrated for her equine paintings of many of the modern era’s most famous race horses, including American Pharoah, Justified and Zenyatta.

Finally, Kentucky Life travels to Paducah, home to the Coca-Cola Art Deco building, which has been refurbished by Ed and Meagan Musselman and now houses an assortment of local businesses, such as a pizza parlor, craft brewery, coffee shop and yoga studio.

Kentucky Life is a KET production, produced by Brandon Wickey. Segment producers for this episode are Chelsea Gorham, Paul Smith, Valerie Trimble and Gary Pahler.

This year is Kentucky Life’s 25th anniversary, and to mark the occasion, the program will include special Memory segments, in which each of Kentucky Life’s hosts—Byron Crawford, Dave Shuffett and Doug Flynn—will revisit some of their favorite stories over the years.
