Landrum & Shouse is a proud sponsor of a bourbon barrel, part of the LexArts Town Branch Bourbon Barrel Project. This project is a unique public art event in Lexington that celebrates the history of our beloved bourbon, but also chronicles the Town Branch, the long-buried stream that was the formative basis of historic Lexington.

The barrel was designed and executed by local artist Phil May and is entitled “The Wellspring of Champions.”

We are proud to be a long-time supporter of LexArts, participating in the annual Workplace Giving Campaign and sponsoring a painted horse in the Horse Mania 2010 project.
