Louisville's Derby Clock Returns to 4th Street
The Derby Clock (technically called the Louisville Clock) is back on Fourth Street. Barney Bright's kinetic sculpture was first dedicated in 1976 in the Louisville Galleria. Over the subsequent 36 years, the clock has been broken, repaired and moved. It was placed in Theater Square last year and crews have spent the last few weeks making sure the carved figurines that run a mock horse race around the clock are in working order.
