The bond between a patron and an artist is one inspired by the bond between a parent and child. They both offer nurturing support, guidance and the occasional injection of cash necessary for survival. In their current show, KMAC (in association with UofL’s graduate student organization AEGIS) highlights the importance of this relationship by showing selective works from two of Louisville’s finest patrons, Larry Shapin and Ladonna Nicolas. With a collection spanning decades and an amazing eye for talent, Larry and Ladonna have made a name for themselves by amassing an astonishing art collection filled with the “Who’s Who” of the Kentucky art scene. Go see the show and feel inspired to become a patron yourself .
