Sarah Yates, highly valued Creative Consultant for Kentucky to the World, passed away April 12, 2017, after a long illness. She will be greatly missed – for the delightful person she was and for her remarkable creative genius. She was a force with her strategic thinking, writing, and planning for the future of KTW.
Sarah had been the primary story writer for the Louisville design firm Solid Light for a number of years. One of her unique abilities was to capture the essence of a project in the written word in the most compelling ways. Her award-winning words are on the walls of local museums like Frazier History Museum, The Carnegie in New Albany, and the McConnell Center at U of L. She wrote most of the words for the Evan Williams Experience and other bourbon visitor centers. She was a former director of Louisville Visual Art and also taught at IU Southeast. Sarah was an artist and jewelry designer.
