A little known University of Kentucky costume collection will make its big screen debut when a documentary on Lexington’s most famous madam premieres at the Kentucky Theatre Feb. 16.

The documentary, “Brezing and the Gilded Age of the Bluegrass,” will feature garments from UK’s Betty D. Eastin Historic Costume Collection and an interview with Kim Spillman, who manages the collection and is an associate professor in the UK College of Agriculture, Food and Environment.

Jimmy Henning will step down as associate dean for extension and director of the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service on Feb. 15 to return to the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment’s faculty as an extension forage specialist. Henning has led the extension service since 2007.

“I have wanted to return to the field for some time,” Henning said. “With the renewed emphasis on forage programs as part of the Grain and Forage Center of Excellence and the continued need for the same in Eastern Kentucky, the timing just seems right.”
