Founded in 1981, the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft was started as a way to build interest in the state’s rich craft heritage, which lead to a collection of American Folk Art from the region. The Museum explores the relationship between art and craft by identifying art as big ideas and craft as the intersection between process, materials and labor. Their goal is to educate and inspire while promoting a better understanding of art and craft through exhibitions, collaborations, outreach and the permanent collection. Offering exciting public events each month, KMAC encourages rich conversation amongst Louisville’s thriving and creative community.
In 2001, the organization relocated to a four-story cast iron structure located in downtown Louisville’s West Main Street Historic District. The three galleries located on the first, second and third floor provide 27,000 square feet for large-scale exhibitions.
