Enjoy *NEW* virtual experiences with KMAC

Adult Virtual Workshop: Paper Quilling

Tuesday, September 1
Saturday, September 12
$45 per person ($35 for members)

Learn the delicate art of paper quilling in our first ever virtual adult workshop. Your registration fee includes all the supplies and tools you’ll need, delivered to your home at no extra charge. You’ll then attend a one-hour class with an experienced KMAC educator to learn how to get started. Keep your tools and any remaining supplies at the end of the class, to keep practicing as much as you like! Sign up with a family member in your household (one kit required for each participant) or with a friend across town! Either way, don’t delay: your registration must be completed at least a week before the class begins in order to ensure supplies reach you in time.

Registered attendees will be eligible for door prizes given away during the evening. You won’t want to miss out on what promises to be a truly unique collection of Kentucky art!

Martha Nelson Thomas’ Doll Babies
On view as part of the museum’s Where Paradise Lay: Art and Southern Sanctuary exhibition, many of our visitors are surprised that these instantly recognizable soft sculptures have a Kentucky connection. Later mass-produced versions were based on Thomas’ Doll Babies, but it took years before she was properly compensated for her idea.

See Martha Nelson Thomas’ Doll Babies at KMAC, on view through November 8. 

KMAC Couture: Star Stuff poster revealed
Eagle-eyed readers of the KMAC Museum newsletter might recognize this image from a previous KMAC Couture sneak peek. Featuring the incomparable work of artist Wende Cudmore, and modeled by Faith Lindsey, we think this image perfectly encapsulates the creativity, innovative use of materials, and attention to detail that make each KMAC Couture garment such a joy to behold. And with the film now wrapped and in post-production, we can’t wait to show you more of the artists that have made this year’s Couture so memorable.
