Brown Forman Gallery, 3rd Floor

KMAC relays the marriage of art and craft in the context of contemporary art.  The Museum's permanent collection contains works created by notable twentieth century American folk artists as well as local contemporary artists. Some of the artists in KMAC’s collection hail from Eastern Kentucky and the surrounding region, and as a result they function as storytellers of Appalachian culture. Similarly, the contemporary works within the collection are often biographical and topical.

Please see selections of our collection on display.
