The renovation and expansion of the Speed Art Museum has been a boon to both the museum AND to the University of Louisville on whose campus the museum sits.
“We have 10,000 students working every day ext to the Speed. Now they stop asking ‘what is this building’? They know it is a museum. They know it is a place for them,” said Ghyslain D’Humieres, CEO, Speed Art Museum.
“It’s a beautiful part of our campus. It draws people who aren’t used to coming to the University of Louisville campus. It allows them to experience the great art, cultural and learning opportunities here and to learn more the University of Louisville,” added Michael Mardis, UofL’s dean of students.
