Speed Art Collection Loans
The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts is pleased to welcome a loan of contemporary art paintings from the collection of the Speed Art Museum.
Working closely together, a team of professionals at the Speed Art Museum and The Kentucky Center selected appropriate works to be shared, as well as the best possible locations for the installation of each piece. This unique collaboration produced a selection of six paintings installed throughout the building. The paintings, ranging from expressive to geometric abstractions, impressionistic to Photo-realistic landscapes, were mostly created in the 1970s, a period in which there was a renewed commitment to the image in art making. There are several connections to Louisville, be it the artist, subject depicted, or donor who gave the work to the Speed.
