Speed Ball

Speed Ball

The Speed Art Museum Ball is the Speed’s most significant fundraiser and is critical for the current, and future, success of the Museum.

With the opening of the new Museum in March 2016, the Speed Opening Gala served as the 2016 Speed Ball, and was the inaugural celebration for the new Speed Art Museum, having been closed since 2012 for a $60-million dollar renovation and expansion.

Guests are invited to explore the entire Museum, to discover the cinema, galleries, exhibitions, and site-specific commissions that make the Speed Art Museum one of the flagship arts and cultural institutions of the region. The building will also be a canvas for continuous food, drink, comfortable lounges, entertainment, and engaging programming throughout – showcasing the rich arts, cultural, music and culinary scene of Louisville and the surrounding area. Between live music, performance art, dancing, and film, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
