From Winslow Homer to Georgia O’Keeffe traces a century of the modern creative spirit in the United States, ranging from realistic landscapes to bold abstract forms.
This comprehensive exhibition features highlights from the Speed’s American Indian collection, along with paintings, drawings and photographs by Louisville artist and ethnographer Frederick Weygold. Although Weygold’s work as an illustrator, photographer and collector of Native American art is highly regarded in Europe, he remains virtually unknown in the U.S. This exhibition offers for the first time a thorough account of this remarkable man and his achievements.
Our 2017 special exhibition season begins with Kay WalkingStick: An American Artist, the first major retrospective of one of today’s most accomplished Native American artists and a leading practitioner of contemporary landscape painting.
