Since opening its door in January, 1927, the J.B. Speed Art Museum has become Kentucky's largest and most comprehensive public art collection with over 5,000 works of art spanning 6,000 years of history from Antiquity to the present day.
Examples of 19th-century painting include works by Monet, Cassatt, and Sargent. Contemporary American painting features works by Frankenthaler, Rauschenberg and Stella.
The Museum's sculpture collection includes works by Remington, Rodin, Brancusi and Henry Moore, as well as an elaborately carved English paneled room which dates from the early 1600s.
The permanent installation, Art of the Ancient World, features over 90 of the finest Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan and Roman art objects in the Museum's collection, dating from 4000 B.C. to 400 A.D.
The Museum's Charles and Charlotte Price Gallery for Native American Art exhibits art objects from the tribes of the Great Plains--the Sioux, Cheyenne, Crow, Kiowa and the Arapaho.
