Experience Fine Art in Louisville Museums and Galleries

Louisville’s art museums and galleries are at the center of the city’s cultural life. In addition to permanent and rotating collections of ancient, classical, and modern art in our well-known cultural institutions like the Speed Art Museum, downtown Louisville has become home to art galleries featuring new works by emerging local artists as well as touring retrospectives of established painters and sculptors.

In addition to fine art, you’ll find the best of Lousiville’s craftsmen and craftswomen hard at work and displaying their finest pieces at Glassworks and the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, where classes teach contemporary and traditional classes and galleries display work ranging from the pre-industrial to the startlingly modern.

Explore the art galleries, guilds, and museums listed below to get a glimpse of Louisville’s visual art treasures.
