Kay Grubola has created exhibitions on a wide range of topics that are conceptually challenging but also accessible to novice viewers. An exhibition, which was covered by both the New York Times and der Spiegel, of original concept drawings from the design studios of GM, Chrysler, and Ford from the 1960s and 1970s muscle car era broke new ground. These never-before-shown drawings energetically bridge the gap between artistic vision and popular culture. The widely acclaimed show has been touring the country for three years. Kay curated shows for the Mayor of Louisville which traveled to Washington, D.C. showcasing talent from Louisville and attracting national arts funding, and an exhibition of works on paper for an exchange with artists in Scotland and Germany. She also originated DinnerWorks, a nationally recognized extravaganza of handmade dinnerware and exquisite table design, which wowed audiences for over 20 years.
