Arts & Culture

Paducah's creative community inspires, educates and fosters connection through its vibrant art scene. As a UNESCO Creative City, Paducah welcomes artists from around the world to share culture and craft through exhibitions, workshops and performances.

Preview venues spotlighting visual arts, performing arts, film and public art below!

The Yeiser Art Center, Maiden Alley Cinema and Gallery, Market House Theatre, Clemens Fine Art Center and the Carson Center facilitate Paducah's rich diversity of ongoing cultural offerings from live theatre, to exhibitions, art films, and classical performances by the Paducah Symphony Orchestra.

Paducah's Artist Relocation Program attracted working artists of all types to participate in the City's creative energy and reside in its oldest residential neighborhood, Lower Town. The campus of Paducah School of Art & Design, a division of West Kentucky Community & Technical College, is the latest addition to the Lower Town Arts District.

The work of local artists and creatives can be explored at Paducah's art galleries & collectives!
