’Reflect, Reframe, Remake, Remodel: 40 Years Of Recrafting KMAC’

This exhibition is a visual story of how a museum constructed itself by way of crafts. The 40 artists reflect the 40-year history of KMAC. In its early days, it was known as the Kentucky Art and Craft Foundation, and later, the Kentucky Art and Craft Gallery, and eventually represented over 500 folk and craft artists. Its present incarnation is a museum with a permanent collection. The museum is also featuring “MAKING IT” in the KMAC Shop with handmade objects by local artists including Chad Balster, Cynthia Norton and J-D Schall.
