Shatner to unveil samurai sculpture in Louisville
Question of the Day
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — He’s known as Capt. James T. Kirk of “Star Trek” fame, but actor William Shatner will be in Louisville this week to honor the samurai warrior culture.
Shatner is donating a bronze sculpture featuring a samurai warrior on horseback to the Frazier History Museum, which has a new samurai exhibit that opened Saturday.
The sculpture, by Kentucky artist Douwe Blumberg, will be unveiled Tuesday morning at the museum in downtown Louisville. The sculpture is a copy of one that Shatner owns.
The museum says the 3,800-square-foot exhibition displays more than 200 objects, from armor and swords to rare textiles, artwork and religious items. It opened in conjunction with the centennial celebration of the 1912 gift of cherry trees to the people of the U.S. by the people of Japan.
