Kentucky Online Arts Resource

The Kentucky Online Arts Resource (KOAR) is a project of The Speed Art Museum. Launched in April 2006, KOAR provides access to over 1,600 objects showing more than 2,800 images of Kentucky’s historic decorative arts, fine arts, folk arts and design.

KOAR draws upon the Speed Art Museum’s extensive holdings of Kentucky art, the most important collection of its kind in the United States. Click here for exclusive visual access to numerous private collections as well as to the collections of other museums and public institutions.

KOAR’s development, operation, and free usage policy have been made possible through the generosity of numerous individuals and foundations. The Speed thanks these donors for their support and vision.
