Saturday, February 12

10:30 am – 12:30 pm

Cold weather can’t keep us from enjoying the beauty of nature! Learn how to create cyanotype prints in this workshop inspired by Ralph Eugene Meatyard’s monochromatic photographs of Kentucky’s Red River Gorge, currently on view in our special exhibition The Unforeseen Wilderness. Using dried florals and photo negatives, participants will make their own cyanotypes on fabric (from the warmth of The Speed’s classrooms!) as well as learn experimental methods to try at home.



First Friday of the month

5:30 – 7:30 pm

This monthly series provides visitors the opportunity to draw from a live model dressed in costuming inspired by artworks currently on display at The Speed! Available spots are first-come, first-serve. Drawing materials, folding stools, and a limited number of aisles are provided, though visitors are welcome to bring their own supplies (dry media only). This program is FREE with admission!
