The Kentucky Folk Art Center at Morehead State University is one of Kentucky’s special places. Located in the historic Union Grocery, the Center offers much more than a typical museum experience. KFAC houses a permanent collection of nearly 1,400 pieces of self-taught art. Dozens of works from the collection are displayed on a rotating basis in the center’s first floor gallery. Upon viewing folk art for the first time, many are attracted to its whimsical attributes, and we should take joy in these works as the artists intended. But in many instances, the art that you see on the walls at KFAC was born out of hard times. The works displayed here stand as a document of and testament to the concerns, courage, and convictions of the common man.

In the second floor gallery, the Center presents several new changing exhibits each year, which can feature folk art, fine art, textiles, photography, and historical content. KFAC also boasts one of the best gift shops in the region, offering original folk art, crafts, jewelry, books, toys, housewares and much more.

Each year KFAC hosts or sponsors regular cultural events and activities, like A Day in the Country folk art fair held on the first Saturday of June and the Appalachian Holiday Arts & Crafts Fair held on the first Saturday of December. For a complete schedule of upcoming events and exhibition openings please call or visit our website.

This year we are part of the Good Giving Guide Challenge! It is our goal to recruit 50 new members during the challenge. To become a member, donate $25 to our organization through the GoodGiving Guide Challenge, or through our Become a Friend of KFAC page.
