Patron Circle + Commonwealth Circle

Patron Circle is an active group of philanthropists devoted to supporting the Speed’s innovative exhibitions and programs. The group convenes to engage in educational and social activities – including exhibition openings, private curator-led tours, artist lectures and the annual Bacchanal Party.

Commonwealth Circle Members support the Speed in expanding its statewide impact through Kentucky-focused exhibitions and programs and education initiatives.
