Speed Art Museum says
Join us for the opening weekend of "Picturing American Indian Cultures: The Art of Kentucky's Frederick Weygold."

FREE for members / $5 for non-members in addition to general admission

Saturday Hours: 10 am–5 pm
11 am: Lecture with guest curator Dr. Christian Feest (free with admission)

Sunday Hours: 12 pm–5 pm

The Speed Art Museum’s new exhibition features paintings, drawings, and photographs by Louisville artist and ethnographer Frederick Weygold, as well as highlights from the Speed’s American Indian collection. Although Weygold’s work as an illustrator, photographer, and collector of American Indian art is highly regarded in Europe, he remains virtually unknown in the United States.

This exhibition offers for the first time a comprehensive account of this remarkable man and his achievements as an artist, collector, educator, and social activist. Highlights of the exhibition include a dramatic, full-length eagle-feather Lakota headdress, American Indian ledger drawings, and rarely seen watercolor sketches and paintings by Weygold.
