Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft (KMAC)

Founded in 1981, Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft (KMAC) on Louisville's Main Street is a nonprofit organization that promotes and supports art and craft excellence in Kentucky and the region.

Under one roof you'll find art galleries, an Education Center, and even a Gallery Shop.

Louisville Life visits KMAC and learns how the museum is not only preserving Kentucky's art and craft heritage -- but how it's advancing it!

Formerly known as Art and Craft Foundation, the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft was founded by former First Lady of Kentucky (and former Miss America) by Phyllis George Brown, with the help of Mary Shands (for whom one of the museum's galleries is named).

"" KMAC sees 65,000 viewers annually.

The Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft is supported in part by the Fund for the Arts and Kentucky Arts Council, a state agency of the Commerce Cabinet.
