Your gift, big or small, is much appreciated and ensures KMAC's sustainability and future as a vital and community-focused contemporary art institution for visitors and art-lovers of all ages.

We believe that through art, we share humanity, which enables us to communicate and grow. KMAC contextualizes Kentucky artists alongside diverse creators from around the world. We also provide unique opportunities for local high school and college students by showcasing their artistic achievements with our signature events and in our exhibition spaces -  like no other museum around.

Donations help secure the future of this important community institution - a place where all are welcome and imagination is encouraged. You're helping to make sure that KMAC is here for another 40 years of connecting people to art and creative practice.
