Pursuing the Masterpiece: Five Recent Acquisitions

September 12 – December 31, 2010

The Large Bathers (1896), by Cézanne

This exhibit features recently acquired artworks from the Museum’s collection. These pieces have been chosen for their originality, technical virtuosity, and rarity.

A new gallery game called “Master Quest” will make Pursuing the Masterpiece entertaining and engaging. The game was created with the purpose of showing visitors the inner workings of how and why the museum selects specific works for a collection.

Only five works are represented in hopes that the viewer will better be able to engage in a close inspection of the work, as well as increase his understanding of why staff and trustees commit so much time, energy, and money towards the pieces’ acquisition and care.

The Speed will also hold a public panel with internationally acclaimed artist and former Louisvillian Sam Gilliam on Thursday, October 21 at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free.
