Lower Town Arts District


Paducah's oldest neighborhood is famous for the award-winning Artist Relocation Program that prompted its colorful revitalization which continues today with the Paducah School of Art & Design campus. The Arts District is populated with working artists, students and artists-in-residence who add to the City's vibrant artistic landscape. Be on the lookout for upcoming gallery exhibitions and openings, hands-on creative experiences and special events including every local's favorite, the Lower Town Arts & Music Festival.

The work of Paducah's resident artists can be viewed and purchased at various art galleries and collectives throughout the city including the Art Guild of Paducah, Yeiser Art Center, Bricolage Art Collective and Raven & Moth.
