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.

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.

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

We loved this little campus museum and found it was well-curated with nice contemporary work as well as a great set of works by art stars such as Andy Warhol, Milton Avery, and John Singer Sergeant. It is the kind of museum that you can...More
