The Museum explores the relationship between art and craft by identifying art as big ideas and craft as the intersection between process, materials and labor. The collection centers on American Folk Art from the region.
Located in a four-story cast iron structure located in downtown Louisville's West Main Street Historic District, one 9,000 sq ft gallery on each of three floors provides plenty of space for large-scale exhibitions.
