Kentucky Spirit: The Naïve Tradition

This was the premiere exhibition of the museum’s collection of works of art by Kentucky’s self-taught artists and craftsmen. The collection gives focus to the unique expressions and innovative techniques utilized by Kentuckians working in this genre. This collection reflects the spirited and creative traditions of those who are unschooled in art and offers a survey of the depth and quality of contemporary art being produced across Kentucky.
