Bryan Station Seniors Create Artwork for Shriners

bryan station 500

LEXINGTON, Ky. (5/13/13)— As a community service project, Bryan Station High School seniors Victoria Jenkins and Gabe Baczkowski worked together on a painting for the Oleika Shriners’ new museum. The artwork features two eagles flying overhead, representing the men who started the Shriners back in 1870. The hatching egg marks the 1908 birth of Oleika Shrine Temple, which moved from North Broadway to Southland Drive in the mid-1950s.

“I wrote out a little story about it and gave it to the students and drew out some sketches. They did an excellent interpretation,” said Doyle Rambo, curator of the fledgling two-room museum.

A Shriner for almost 50 years, Rambo decided it was time to gather archival material and significant photographs for display, including shots of visitors Judy Garland and Pat Boone. “I’ve probably got 30 or 40 old pictures, and I’m still uncovering stuff. I haven’t started digging through the old minutes yet,” he said.

Rambo approached Bryan Station art teacher Marquetta Hensley about her students contributing to the effort as a way to gain experience in giving back to their community. “Anytime I can help a kid get one step ahead of the game, I’ll do it,” he said.

The Shriners will sell prints of Gabe and Victoria’s artwork, with proceeds going to the museum fund. For details, call (859) 277-6869.
