‘Tales From The Turf: The Kentucky Horse, 1825-1950’

It’s hard to believe the Speed Art Museum has not had a major Kentucky equestrian art exhibition until now. To make up for lost time, it is doing it right, with paintings, sculpture, photographs, drawings and prints illustrating Kentucky’s long history with horses. Much of the art on display comes from private collections. The Project to Preserve African-American Turf History will present a free discussion, “Tales of African-American Kentucky Derby Achievements from 1875-1902,” on Sunday, Dec. 1 from 2 to 3 p.m.
