I enjoyed visiting the museum for a little over an hour on Saturday afternoon, June 17, 2017. The upper floor of the museum features a selection from the museum's permanent collection. The museum features a nice variety of paintings in different formats, some sculptures, and...More

We usually visit Friday night prior to event at Singletary Center. Usually there is a temporary exhibit on the ground floor and rotating exhibits from permanent collection on second floor. There is a fine selection of art and sculpture and photos.

I was heartbroken. They were between installations in one area.. ok, but there were very few offerings and they were not displayed in any creative/interesting/thoughtful way. It was extremely sad and it made me wonder what is going on in the arts in that region....More

The museum is part of the University of Kentucky with a very nice collection on exhibit for all taste. There is also a nice gift shop and parking is easy.

I just attended a memorial service here for a great, local Lexington artist! Very well done. The new Director is so nice and has done a superb job with the museum since coming on board. I believe his name is Stewart.

They have a good amount of art here and it's easy to find and easy to navigate the inside. We enjoyed it, but it's not an all-day museum. Just an hour or so.

OK for a small museum, could use more displays in my opinion, but still OK if you are just walking by

This museum, tucked into the back of a performance hall, has interesting art, some lovely outdoor sculptures and a serious attitude problem. Hard to find with minimal signage, unhelpful labels-why is this art, why should I look at it? and a guest services staff that...More
