The new Speed Art Museum is taking shape as the construction project reaches it halfway point this month. The Louisville museum, which has been closed since late 2012, will reopen in April 2016. Construction crews are renovating the original museum, at 2035 S. Third St., and will erect two adjacent buildings that will allow the museum to expand amenities and exhibit space.
Throughout the project’s nearly four-year timeline, it is expected to create 1,713 full-time construction-related jobs and contribute almost $5 million to the state and local economy, according to Speed Museum estimates.

The Speed Museum, originally known as the J. B. Speed Memorial Museum, is Kentucky’s oldest and largest art museum. It was founded in 1925 by Hattie Bishop Speed as a memorial to her husband, James Breckinridge Speed, a prominent Louisville businessman and philanthropist.

Calhoun Construction Services is providing the contracting services to the Speed Art Museum for their multi phase expansion and renovation which broke ground in the Spring of 2011. The project consists of approximately 200,000 square feet, including 40,000 square feet of renovation, 45,000 square feet of new construction and 135,000 square feet of landscape improvements.
