The re:museum exhibition centers our permanent collection and the UK Art Museum itself through artworks, educational prompts, and other incisive displays. The artworks on view in re:museum draw from our Digital Learning Gallery, an online resource established through a UK Arts Extension Outreach Grant that connects art lovers from across the Commonwealth to our collection. re:museum offers visitors an opportunity to view objects up close and complements online engagement with unique in-person opportunities. Each item on view in re:museum includes contextual background information, contemplative prompts, and activities for a variety of ages and art experience levels.  

In addition to the artwork on display, re:museum also features insights into our institutional history as well as a peak behind the curtain on how we exhibit and preserve works of art. How high on the wall are paintings hung? How are artworks cared for when not on view? Who decides which pieces to show or acquire? Answers to these questions and more can be found throughout the exhibition.  

The Digital Learning Gallery is accessible via our website. Find it on our homepage by scrolling to the button labeled “Digital Learning Gallery.” If you’d like to incorporate re:museum or the Digital Learning Gallery into your curriculum, please contact Education Coordinator Dan Solberg (dan.solberg@uky.edu).
